Dr. Mansoor Nasir received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California-Berkeley. He worked as a research scientist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. before joining the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University. He has several publications in the areas of microfluidics, chemical and biological sensors, and MEMS technology. He is also passionate about engineering pedagogy. He has not only published articles on engineering education but has also led several workshops on using instructional methodologies that make classroom instruction more engaging and effective.
Dr. Meyer directs the Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory (EBL) at LTU with the goal of advancing experimental biomechanics understanding. Dr. Meyer teaches Introduction to Biomechanics, Tissue Mechanics, Engineering Applications in Orthopedics, and Foundations of Medical Imaging. He has been an active member of the engineering faculty committee that has redesigned the Foundations of Engineering Design Projects course that is required for all freshmen in the College of Engineering at LTU. This committee is currently designing a new sophomore-level Engineering Entrepreneurship Studio that will also be required for all students as a continuation of the “Foundations Studio.” He has published 33 peer-reviewed journal and conference proceeding articles. At LTU, Meyer offers a number of outreach programs for high school students and advises many projects for undergraduate students.
Mr. Weaver received a B.S. and M.S. in Engineering Mechanics with a specialization in Biomechanics at Michigan State University. He worked for Exponent Failure Analysis Associates in the Biomechanics group for over 10 years. In this capacity he was primarily responsible for performing Injury Causation analyses and Accident Reconstruction in the context of civil and criminal litigation. He founded and is the President of Explico Engineering Company. Mr. Weaver continues to work in the field of Forensic Engineering with a specialization in Biomechanics and Accident Reconstruction. He continues to conduct research and publish on injury mechanisms with both the Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratories at Michigan State University and with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University. Mr. Weaver is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University and holds a seat on the Academic Advisory Board.
