Curriculum Vitae

Andrea Morrell

Ph.D. Candidate
Andrea ( joined the Bone Bioengineering Lab in September 2012 after receiving her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester. Andrea’s research utilizes an ex vivo model of live osteocytes in their native network in the bone to observe real-time mechanotransduction events, such as intracellular calcium signaling and actin network dynamics. Andrea is a former trainee of the NIH T32 Training Grant for Multidisciplinary Engineering Training in Musculoskeletal Research.

Broken bones? Surprisingly, no!

Sam Robinson

Ph.D. Candidate
Sam ( joined the Bone Bioengineering Lab in Fall 2013. He earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 2011 and worked in the Spine Biomechanics Lab at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles for two years after that. Sam works on the mechanobiology side of the lab, specifically using in-vivo models and micro-computed tomography.

Broken bones? He has never broken a bone despite his atrociously low bone density!

Yizhong Jenny Hu

Ph.D. Candidate
Jenny ( joined the Bone Bioengineering Lab in September 2015. She received her B.S in Biomedical Engineering with a focus on biomechanics at Washington University in St. Louis. Her research currently involves HR-pQCT based studies, and searching for early diagnostic and treatment methods for osteoarthritis.

Broken bones? No and hopefully never!

Teo Dinescu

M.S. leading to Ph.D. Candidate
Teo ( joined the Bone Bioengineering Lab in September 2017. She received her B.S. in bioengineering with a focus on biomechanics from UC San Diego in 2017. Teo works on the clinical mechanics side of the lab.

Broken bones? Nope!
