Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering

Dr. Jiang's research work straddles the border between biomechanics and biomedical imaging. He is actively developing image-based computational tools for easily transforming raw biomedical imaging data into simple but clinically/biologically relevant biomechanical parameters of soft tissue pathologies (e.g. elasticity) and blood flow characteristics (e.g. kinetic energy). His current and past work . . .
