Interests: My research has been primarily focused on automotive safety and injury prevention, and I developed computational and shape models crucial to transportation and biomedical research. Specifically, my work has focused on the application of biomechanics and biostatistics in material testing and statistical shape analysis of hard and soft tissues, as well as the development of medical devices and medical image processing. As a biomedical engineer, I characterized the material properties of human abdominal organs and tissues, and also developed probabilistic computational models of these organs. In addition, I also conducted medical image data analysis to better understand the brain injury mechanisms. My recent research focused on the optimization of magnetic resonance imaging for capture brain motion and the development of three-dimensional human brain models under mild angular acceleration using the material point method.
