Brittany Coats, PhD
I support the Ergonomics and Safety program at RMCOEH by teaching courses in biomechanics and serving on graduate student advisory committees. I am also involved in new course development and student recruitment. I have over 15 years of experience investigating traumatic brain and eye injury (TBI), and my expertise lies in evaluating how microstructural mechanics changes with age, trauma, and disease. My research incorporates innovative experimental techniques coupled with high-fidelity computational simulations to improve prediction, diagnosis, and prevention of TBI and vision loss. Research in our lab has been supported by grants from the Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and National Institute for Justice.
