Biomedical Engineering

New Faculty

Karen Moxon has conducted ground breaking research in neuroengineering, developing computational approaches to study the encoding of sensory and motor information. An important focus of her work is the impact of neural injury on the representation of information in the brain. She has a joint appointment in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and joined the department in 2016.

 

 

lewisJamal Lewis has research efforts focused on engineering novel, biomaterial systems to harness and manipulate the innate functionality of phagocytic immune cells in a precise spatial and temporal manner, ultimately for therapeutic applications in immune-related conditions. He received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Florida, and joined the department as an Assistant Professor in 2015.

 

 

 

Jennifer Choi profileJennifer H. Choi has strong interests in curricular innovation through the incorporation of technology and hands-on experiences in the classroom, as well as impacting the community through increased K-12 STEM awareness and education. She received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Tufts University and joined the department as a Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment in 2014.
