Research Interests

Electrically mediated phenomena in tissues and biopolymers; cartilage biomechanics; computational modeling of electric field distributions in the human thorax and heart during electrical defibrillation; transcranial magnetic stimulation.

Current Research

Dr. Eisenberg’s research is directed towards understanding the functional role played by electrically mediated interactions in connective tissues and membranes, as well as the effects and mechanisms of interactions of externally applied electric and magnetic fields. Specifically, his research addresses: electromechanical interactions in cartilage; electrically mediated transport in charged and neutral materials; computational modeling of electric field distributions in the human thorax and heart during electrical defibrillation.
