Jarvis Kong

PhD Candidate

Ph.D. Candidate in Materials Science and Engineering, Whiting School of Engineering

Jarvis received his B.S. in Bioengineering from University of California, San Diego in 2019, and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2021.  He is now a Materials Science and Engineering PhD student pursuing his thesis research on developing natural nanofiber-hydrogel composite matrix for soft tissue reconstruction.  His research goal is to investigate and demonstrate the mechanistic process of how biomaterials can alter or accelerate the tissue responses including immune cell conditioning, angiogenesis, and adipogenesis towards the remodeling of the host soft tissue.  His interests outside the lab include video games and delicious food.
