Yasmin Carter, PhD
Originally from New Zealand, Dr. Carter traveled to England to earn her Bachelor Degree and then Canada for her Masters, PhD and her Postdoctoral Fellowship, but coming to the United States was always her dream. It was the beautiful landscape that helped her decide on New England, and the equally “beautiful” teaching and laboratory facilities that brought her to the UMass System.
Dr. Carter’s research background is in cellular-level bone imaging utilizing a synchrotron, a type of particle accelerator. Dr. Carter is interested in simulation and modeling and is currently working to build a lab for experimental 3D printing and is looking forward to working with iCELS.
