Jason Walker joined the Dean Lab as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the summer of 2014. He received his B.S in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 2010 and his Ph.D. from the University of Toledo in 2014. The focus of his Ph.D. was additive manufacturing of porous and stiffness-tailored NiTi components for use in medical implants. As part of the Dean Lab, Jason investigated the use of medical image data for designing and 3-D printing patient-specific cranial and facial bone tissue engineered implants.
