Shane was appointed as a postdoctoral student at Johns Hopkins in the Biomedical Engineering department starting in January 2022. Prior to arriving at JHU, Shane was raised in North Carolina and proceeded to earn an AS from Wake Technical Community College. Afterwards, he enlisted in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. After his enlistment, he returned to school at UNC Greensboro where he earned a BS in Physics and Astronomy. After completing his undergraduate degree in 2017 he continued his education at The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering where he earned his PhD by studying the physics of cardiomyocytes and applying machine learning techniques to help predict myocardial ischemia from electrocardiograms (ECGs).
Shane currently enjoys solving physical problems of the heart using computer simulations and multidisciplinary approaches. He wishes to apply these solutions in a clinical setting to improve lives and prevent cardiac death. Shane also enjoys teaching and helping others understand problems and how to solve them.
Outside of the lab Shane enjoys spending time with his wife and son, traveling, chilling, playing soccer (although he’s not as good as he once was!) and just about anything else. Please feel free to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
