About this team member

Phillip joined the lab in fall 2013 as an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan planning on studying Biomedical Engineering. He worked on a project to better understand the nanoscale structure of Type 1 collagen through the use of Atomic Force Microscopy. He is current an MS student in Biomedical Engineering at UM working on understanding how Osteoporosis, and the drugs used to treat it, impact bone structure and function.
