Goulbourne earns NSF award to research heart stent sensors
Date:9/5/2008

grew up. I am especially pleased and am very much looking forward to working with my alma mater, Wolmer's High School for Girls. The main goals of the workshop are to mentor, provide role models, and expose the underrepresented majority of women to the exciting and challenging field of engineering and science."

In the Girls in Engineering, Mathematics, and Science workshop, she will be working with her colleagues Karen Thole and Michael Alley of The Pennsylvania State University, both of whom are former faculty members at Virginia Tech, and Timothy Long of Virginia Tech's chemistry department.

"I am both excited and honored to have been selected as a recipient of the CAREER award. This award creates an excellent opportunity to pursue my research on electroactive polymer biosensors. I believe that in situ health monitoring realized through multifunctional sensors will arm clinicians with new diagnostic tools and enable critical interventions. The ultimate goal of this research is to bridge the gap between vascular mechanical response and current vascular health, which will be of widespread benefit to our society. My future aspirations are to continue to build a strong program at Virginia Tech," Goulbourne said.

Goulbourne received a bachelor's degree in physics from Middlebury College in 2000, and completed her master's degree and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at The Pennsylvania State University in 2005. She is one of the core faculty members in Virginia Tech's Center for Intelligent Material Systems and Structures. Goulbourne is a member of the Society of Engineering Science (SES), the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE).

In the last three years she has secured approximately $1.2 million dollars in funding and support for her research. Her current research initiatives include electroactive polymers,
