My research focuses on endothelial cell behavior in response to combinations of mechanical forces. These mechanical forces include fluid shear stress, stretching, pressure, substrate stiffness, and substrate topography, which together make up the mechanical microenvironment. I am investigating how we can mediate the effects of these forces to direct endothelial cell behavior to inform biomaterial design.
