Tim Lannin joined the Bioengineering Department as a teaching faculty in Fall 2017 and teaches numerous courses including Transport and Fluids for Bioengineers, Capstone Design, and Biomaterials. Prior to joining Northeastern, he taught for a year as a visitor at Lafayette College Mechanical Engineering, and prior to that, he completed his PhD at Cornell’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering under the advisement of Dr. Brian Kirby with the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. His research included work on automating image analysis of cancer cells, measuring the electrical properties of cancer cells to use electric fields to separate them from blood cells, and measuring the electrical properties of algae cells to optimize their output for biofuels.

Bioengineering BS/MS student Jake Potts was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Fellowship which he will use to conduct research at Sorbonne University to try to determine how certain cancerous mutations happen as DNA is “misrepaired,” a process that occurs when, say, radiation or harsh chemicals break the two strands of our DNA, and our cells respond by trying to repair this damage.
