Megan is a Clinical Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET). She has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Her undergraduate coursework focused on heat transfer and thermodynamics while her graduate work focused on biomechanics and orthopaedics. The primary focus of her doctoral research was quantifying and enhancing the mechanical and tribological properties of articular cartilage. Her research was funded by a number of grants, including one from the Army and one from Zimmer Orthopaedics in Warsaw. Following graduation she spent one year as a research engineer at Zimmer Orthopaedics in the Hip research department and joined Purdue’s College of Technology in July 2014. During her time at the University of Arizona, she was a member of the Chemistry Club, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Tau Beta Pi. While at Notre Dame, she was a volunteer at South Bend Animal Care and Control and swam with Irish Masters, an affiliate of U.S. Masters Swimming.
