Doctor of Philosophy (Queensland University of Technology)
Dr Jessica Benitez is a Biomedical Engineer with a PhD in cardiovascular biomechanics and dual Master’s degrees in medical physics and lumbar spine biomechanics. Her doctoral studies have provided her with extensive expertise in computational biomechanics, patient-specific medical imaging analysis, and experimental analysis of biological tissue. She also possesses a strong foundation in medical physics. Currently, Dr. Benitez’s research focuses on analyzing the fluid and structural biomechanics of carotid arteries, coronary arteries, heart atrium, and intracranial aneurysms. She has developed novel methods to analyze the stresses experienced by plaque components and arterial walls.
