Justin McMahon


Justin graduated from Case Western Reserve University(CWRU) in May of 2018 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering focusing in biomechanics. At CWRU, Justin was an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Capadona Lab, researching the injury and inflammatory response due to the implantation of electrodes into the brain, while also competing for the Varsity Football team. These experiences led to his interest in injury biomechanics and then to him joining the Center of Applied Biomechanics (CAB) as a Mechanical Engineering Technician in June of 2018. At the CAB, Justin has worked on projects pertaining to underbody blast biomechanics for the WIAMan Underbody Blast Manikin development and behind armor blunt trauma.
