Dr. Kimberly Boster, M.S., Ph.D

Dr. Kimberly Boster is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Rochester where she works with neuroscientists to understand the fundamentals of the recently discovered glymphatic system. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Brigham Young University in 2018 and 2015, respectively.

Her doctoral work explored condensation on superhydrophobic surfaces, and her Master’s degree focused on the fluid-structure interactions of human vocal folds. She then became a Lillian Gilbreth Postdoctoral Fellow in the Waldon School of Biomedical Engineering and the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University where she worked with clinicians and engineers to apply engineering principles to build patient-specific cardiovascular models.
