Uses principles of continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics, mass transport theory, and pharmacokinetics to investigate tissue-level drug transport and the mechanical behavior of biological soft tissues.

Dr. Sarntinoranont grew up in Starke, Clermont and Gainesville, FL. Her degrees are in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in Bioengineering. Dr.S’s research is driven by a vision to develop engineering tools for patient-specific drug therapy. Her lab is developing image-based computational models that predict flows and transport within the brain, spinal cord, tumors and bioreactors. She is an author on over 100 journal articles and conference proceedings and she is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. She has been the research advisor of over 25 graduate students and over 50 undergraduate students. In her free time, she likes to listen to rock music and garden.
