Erica Cherry Kemmerling
Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, 2013
2013-2015 Postdoctoral Scholar, Stanford University School of Medicine
Assistant Professor Erica Cherry Kemmerling holds a B.S. in Physics and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Her graduate work focused on the dynamics of magnetic particles moving through the bloodstream for applications in magnetic drug targeting. Her postdoctoral work at Stanford University School of Medicine involved developing a medical imaging system for a new radiation therapy device that will deliver treatment in about 1/100 of the time required for current systems.
Professor Kemmerling's research addresses problems at the intersection of mechanical engineering and medicine, focusing on fluid flow and heat transfer in the human body. Her current work uses simulations and experiments to develop realistic models of the circulatory and respiratory systems. This research has three main goals:
The Kemmerling group collaborates with doctors at the Tufts Medical Center to ensure that each research project will yield results that can be directly used by the medical community.
