Title of Project: Validation of acetabular pelvic fracture plates using a spine-pelvis simulator

“Here at Union College I have been involved in an ongoing computer-aided Finite Element study to assess fracture healing benefits for a novel pelvis fracture plate option.
The next step is to move from the computer simulation to an actual spine-pelvis simulator. The Spine Biomechanics laboratory at the University of Ulm owns a state-of-the-art spine simulator that can be manipulated to assess various fracture healing parameters.”

Title of Project: Modeling the Sustainability of Producing Bio-Based Carboxylic Acids

“This project is one that I’ve worked with a professor at the University of Geneva to design and propose to the Fulbright Committee. I’m looking to analyze the raw materials, energy use, health hazards and environmental pollution associated with the bio-based and petroleum-based production of these acids. The hope (officially known as the final goal) is to develop a model that will help the companies looking into investing into new bio-based technologies.”
