Anish Mukherjee

PhD candidate

Anish completed his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Jadavpur University in India. He went on to complete his PhD in BioEngineering from Georgia Tech, in the lab of Dr. J. Brandon Dixon. During his PhD, Anish investigated the role of the oscillatory mechanical microenvironment of lymphatics on their contractile function, with the ultimate goal of finding therapeutic strategies for reducing lymphedema by targeting the collecting lymphatics. He is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the lab of Dr. Melody Swartz.
