Bio

Joseph Featherall is a Mechanical Engineer, currently attending a Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program at Columbia University. Mr. Featherall received his Bachelor of Science from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2011. His interest in Medical education came from experiences he gained through a Volunteer program in Primary Care he undertook at the Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education in Scranton, PA.

During 2008 and 2009, Mr. Featherall led the design team which built the hemodynamic simulator currently being used in the lab to test and rupture aneurysm models. From July 9, 2012 to August 24, 2012, Mr. Featherall worked with Dr. Ankur Chandra in the Cardiovascular Engineering lab, managing lab projects, coordinating Engineering students and working on computational modeling of aortic and stent-graft structural mechanics and fluid dynamics using several programs.

During his time within the lab, Mr. Featherall also spent a significant amount of time identifying and applying to possible funding opportunities and collaborative partners. Mr. Featherall has applied for a Tech Transfer grant in order to bring the AV Fistula technology onto the market.
