Brian D. Stemper, PhD, is a professor in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering and has a secondary appointment in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he serves as a Research Biomedical Engineer at the Zablocki VA Medical Center Laboratories. He received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Marquette University in May 2004. His areas of research include biomechanics of the head, neck, and spine with emphasis on the investigation of traumatic brain injury and spinal biomechanics using experimental, imaging, and computer modeling techniques.
Dr. Stemper has given over 70 invited lectures and briefings and published over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering and in advisory roles for the Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium (RMBS), Inc., and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and is an active member of the Society for Neuroscience, the National Neurotrauma Society, the Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS), the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and ASME.
He received the Best Paper by a Young Investigator Award at the 2004 International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Impact (IRCOBI) Conference in Graz, Austria. He has also been active at national and international scientific conferences, serving as Program Chair for the 2009 RMBS Meeting in Milwaukee, WI, Program Committee Co-Chair (2006-08) for the Rachdian Society Annual Meeting in Kona, HI, and Track Coordinator for the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics in Munich, Germany.
He has also mentored numerous PhD and Master’s level engineering students from Marquette University and International Institutions, residents and fellows from the Department of Neurosurgery, MCW, and undergraduate engineering students from local Institutions.
