A member of the UD faculty since 2005, she conducts research focusing on musculoskeletal biomechanics and mechanobiology. Specifically, she has studied how mechanical forces impact bone, cartilage and vascular health in the context of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, diabetic bone, and cancer bone metastasis, leading to more than 80 peer-reviewed journal papers. She has received 30 grants totaling more than $30.5 million and has actively participated in many academic conferences, including the annual ASBMR meetings. At UD, she directs the Center for Biomechanical Engineering Research (CBER) and is co-director of the Multiscale Assessment Research Core of the NIH-funded Delaware Center for Musculoskeletal Research (DCMR). Designation as a fellow of the ASBMR recognizes long-term members who have shown a commitment to the society through service as a volunteer, have made outstanding contributions to the field of bone and mineral science and have published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR) and/or JBMR Plus. Fellows are nominated by their peers, followed by an evaluation and selection by a review committee and approved by the ASBMR Council. The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research is the leading professional, scientific and medical society established to bring together clinical and experimental scientists involved in the study of bone and mineral metabolism.
