(03/10/2022) - Junior BME student Alexis Throop was selected among three finalists to present her research at the Society of Women Engineers: WE Local Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Her work conducted in Dr. Zakerzadeh's Computational Biomechanics Lab studies the role of the intraluminal thrombus on abdominal aortic aneurysms using a fluid-structure interaction model. She was awarded the Women in STEM Travel Award at Duquesne for this conference where she prepared both a poster and oral presentation.

Alexis has previously presented her research at the Biomedical Engineering Society Annual Meeting and the Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, and Biotransport Conference.
