Research Interests:

Jennifer has a strong background in medical imaging and engineering. She has worked closely with clinicians to develop 3D printing workflows for creating anatomical models to serve as tools for surgical planning and medical trainers. Additionally, she develops image processing algorithms for disease detection and quantification. With respect to medical devices, Jennifer has worked on the design, development and test of multiple medical devices with clinical, academic and industry collaborators. She enjoys designing, fabricating and characterizing biomaterials. Jennifer is also involved with mentoring students, teaching classes and developing curriculum.
