Biographical Information

Philip V. (Phil) Bayly is The Lilyan and E. Lisle Hughes Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Bayly earned an A.B. in Engineering Science from Dartmouth College, an M.S. in Engineering from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Duke University. He has been a member of the faculty at Washington University since 1993. His research involves the study of waves, instability, and oscillations in mechanical and biological systems, using imaging and image processing to understand the mechanics of cells and biological tissues. Dr. Bayly’s research in brain biomechanics and flagellar oscillations has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Office of Naval Research
