Michael began working in the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory in the Summer of 2004 as a Masters student in Biomedical Engineering. Shortly after this period, since it was determined that he was an invaluable asset to the lab, Michael was strongly urged to continue his research as a Doctoral student. Michael's current research focuses on solute transport in dynamically loaded porous media and solute partitioning in the cellular cytoplasm.
In his spare time, and while at work, Michael spends countless hours reading the Daily Racing Form while listening to Steely Dan.
