The AME Student Research Spotlight this month is Robert Kunkel, a member of the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Design Lab (BBDL). Kunkel is pursuing his master’s degree in mechanical engineering. He conducts research as a part of the BBDL under Dr. Chung-Hao Lee. His primary focus is on the development of novel treatment devices for aneurysms in the brain. Outside of the lab, he plays ultimate frisbee with the OU Apes of Wrath team and participates on the manipulation sub-team of the Sooner Rover Team. Robert plans to graduate in May of 2019 and enter into an industry position where he can continue to apply mechanical engineering principles to the field of human medicine.
