Teaching Interests



Kaveh Laksari received his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Tehran, in Iran.

He moved to the U.S. in 2007 for his graduate studies, where he worked on injury biomechanics. He particularly focused on traumatic brain injury under high loading rates and aortic injury due to dynamic bending, for which he was awarded an American Heart Association fellowship.

He moved to Stanford University in 2014 as a postdoctoral scholar. There he worked on mild traumatic brain injury in sports scenarios and was awarded a fellowship from the Child Health Research Institute. He joined the BME department at UA in August 2017.
