Blake Erickson 

Ph.D. candidate
Biophysics (2006-present)

Project: Functional Imaging and Mechanics of Nanoscale Biological Systems
Advisor: Mark Banaszak Holl


About Blake:
Blake graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2006.  He spent two years in Paul Hansma's lab studying the fracture mechanics of trabecular bone.  At Michigan, he has focused on adapting and applying Atomic Force Microscopy to biological systems.  He is currently looking at the properties of supported lipid bilayers and bone.

Outside of the lab, Blake splits his free time ballroom dance and photography.
