Jingjie Hu

Assistant Professor

Dr. Jingjie Hu’s research focuses on the mechanical behavior of biomedical and biological materials. Her work contributes to this understanding by focusing on the design, fabrication and characterization of bio related structures through integrated mechanics, materials and bioengineering approaches. It combines experimental and theoretical tools that enable the prediction of mechanical behaviors at the nano-, micro- and macro- scales. Dr. Hu’s research is highly interdisciplinary and impacts critical biomedical applications such as cancer detection and vascular embolization.
Dr. Hu received her Ph.D. from Princeton University and her B.S.E. from the University of Michigan, both in mechanical engineering. Prior to joining NC State, she completed her postdoctoral training in translational bioengineering at Mayo Clinic.
