Project: Multiphysics Computational Modeling for Continuous and Remote Monitoring Optical Medical Devices
Computational modeling is a valuable tool to evaluate the performance and design of medical devices. My project centers around the development and validation of Monte Carlo and COMSOL Multiphysics models to aid in the design of 2 devices: a fully insertable and multi-modal glucose biosensor towards remote blood glucose monitoring, and a wearable dual-photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor towards remote blood pressure monitoring. Additionally, this modeling effort is a key component in ensuring these devices work within medically underserved and underrepresented populations.
B.S. Biomedical Engineering, 2018. The Ohio State University
Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering Texas A&M University
Future Career Goals: Computational modeling is becoming an invaluable tool in the device development process: from estimating failure points to designing clinical trials, I believe in silico research will continue to burgeon within biomedical engineering. My career goals are to work within the medical device industry and advocate for the adoption of computational modeling, especially towards regulatory applications.
