Prof. Linxia Gu received a B.E. in Xi’an Jiaotong University in 1993, a M.E. in Dalian University of Technology in 1996, and a Ph.D. in University of Florida in 2004. In 2006 she joined Mechanical Engineering, SDSM&T as an assistant professor. In 2009 she joined Mechanical and Materials Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) as an assistant professor. In 2013 she became the Graduate Chair for the Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. program, College of Engineering, UNL, and as an associate professor for Mechanical and Materials Engineering. In 2019 she joined Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) for Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and Sciences as a professor.
It is challenging to detect the brain injury induced by mild blast or impact loading using current measurement techniques. This talk will discuss the fundamental mechanisms of brain inury induced by a mild blast with the goal to develop an efficient biomarker. The role of protective gears will be evaluated through computational models integrated with fragmented in-vitro & in-vivo experimental data. The mechanical measurements and analysis are expected to facilitate the development of the functional brain injury thresholds and preventive measures.
