BME Seminar Series: Dr. Audrey Nguyen, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
"A Crash Course in Ocular Biomechanics"
This seminar will focus on the biomechanics of the eye, and will cover a variety of topics including ocular anatomy and physiology, mechanical testing in a laboratory setting, mathematical and finite-element modeling. This topic is aimed at an undergraduate audience and is designed to be an example of translation of theory in the classroom to hands-on-application in the lab. Dr. Nguyen will also present her scholarly interests as a researcher in engineering education.
B. Audrey Nguyen is a lifelong Buckeye, and completed her bachelor’s, master's and doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Ohio State University. Her doctoral work centered on the biomechanics of the sclera. Currently, Dr. Nguyen is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Her teaching interests include engineering fundamentals, labs, Matlab programming, and biomechanics. Her research and educational interests include orthopaedic biomechanics, ocular biomechanics, working with undergraduate teaching assistants, and developing biomedical engineering curricula that focuses on improving student metacognition
