Episode 51: Weaving together Space, Aging, and Vehicle Safety Biomechanics | Ashley Weaver

We had so much fun talking to Professor Ashley Weaver, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Wake Forest School of Medicine about both her impactful research and educational projects. Her research spans three themes: 1) injury/crash biomechanics to improve car safety design elements 2) osteoporosis in aging and 3) the effects of space and microgravity on astronaut musculoskeletal systems. She uses a number of imaging modalities and modeling techniques to explore these themes and improve human biomechanics and health. She also directs university graduate and undergraduate programs to train the next generation of leaders and shares some tips on mentorship and building community.
