Jasmine Naik is currently a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California Irvine. She is working under the guidance of Dr. Anna Grosberg in the Cardiovascular Modeling Laboratory. Prior to beginning her Ph.D., she received her bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering at Rowan University. Throughout her years of schooling, she has become passionate about teaching and education research.
Emil Lundqvist graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering: Premedical. He has conducted research with the Cardiovascular Modeling Laboratory in the field of cardiovascular biomechanics and currently works as the Core Laboratory Manager at the Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology.
Dr. Christine King is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Biomedical Engineering at UC Irvine. She received her BS and MS from Manhattan College in Mechanical Engineering and her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from UC Irvine, where she developed brain-computer interface systems for neurorehabilitation. She was a post-doctorate in the Wireless Health Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a research manager in the Center for SMART Health, where she focused on wireless health monitoring for stroke and pediatric asthma. Her current research is on engineering education, specializing in pedagogy strategies to promote learning in design-build-test courses, including senior design, computer programming, and computer-aided-design courses.
Anna Grosberg received her PhD from California Institute of Technology under the guidance of Professor Mory Gharib, where she created a computational model of the myocardium mechanics. She was then a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in Professor Kit Parker's Disease Biophysics Group, where she worked on both computational modeling of cellular self-assembly and experimental tissue engineering device design. She started her faculty position in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2012, and she is a core member of The Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology. She also has a joint appointment with Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and is part of the Center for Complex Biological Systems. The Grosberg lab, the Cardiovascular Modeling Laboratory, focuses on using both computational and experimental methods to investigate the structure, dynamics, and function of the heart at multiple length-scales.
