As a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Mark Burgess received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Materials Engineering. He worked as a research co-op in Dr. T. Douglas Mast’s biomedical acoustics laboratory on various projects including: blood vessel occlusion using high-intensity focused ultrasound, integrated image-guided ultrasound tumor ablation, and passive cavitation imaging using diagnostic ultrasound arrays.
He entered the post-bachelors Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University in the fall of 2010. He is continuing his medical acoustics research in the Nanomedicine and Medical Acoustics Laboratory at BU where his current interests are acoustic cavitation monitoring and ultrasound-mediated drug delivery.
