Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Joint Appointment in the School of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Gleason began at Tech in Fall 2005 as an Assistant Professor. Prior, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Texas A&M University.
Dr. Gleason's current research interest is in soft tissue biomechanics and growth and remodeling, with particular emphasis on native vascular tissues and tissue engineered constructs. Two key aims of his research are to develop mathematical theories for soft tissue growth and remodeling that allow for the incorporation of observations made at multiple length scales, and to develop novel experimental models to test the underlying assumptions of theoretical simulations that allow for parallel observations at different length scales.
