I have recently started my PhD in the field of neuromechanics. The aim of my project is to develop a microstructure-informed viscoelastic material model for brain tissue. Currently, I am mainly working on the experimental characterization of the mechanical behavior of brain tissue with a focus on the reactions of cells inside the tissue to mechanical loading.
