Angela Lin

Research Engineer

Biography

Angela Lin is a Research Engineer specializing in microCT imaging and biomechanical testing. She graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering in 1999 and a Master's in Mechanical Engineering in 2002 then transitioned to a full time position in 2003 managing the MicroCT and Biomechanics Core Facilities. She has extensive experience with Scanco microCT scanners and MTS and Bose mechanical testing systems. Angela is a highly regarded women's ultimate frisbee player in the U.S. She has played with the Atlanta women's team, Ozone, since 1996, and she was a part of the U.S. National team in 2005. When not in the lab, she might be found traveling, working out, eating, attending concerts of her favorite band, or searching for a sushi restaurant that will make oysters uni ikura.

Current Research

Angela's research interests span a wide variety of application areas. Her thesis project involved developing biodegradable polymer scaffolds for bone tissue engineering and characterizing their microstructure and mechanical properties. Most of her current projects are related to musculoskeletal tissue regeneration, degeneration, and repair. These include skeletal phenotyping of transgenic animals, quantifying morphological and compositional changes for multiple tissues during osteoarthritis progression, assessing the bone and vascular responses to long bone fracture, and analyses of mechanics-based alterations in bone development and healing. Additionally, various projects examine changes in vascular anatomy due to injury or disease, developmental and evolutionary biology in different animal species, biomaterials microstructure, and biomedical device mechanical properties.
