Brief Bio

Dana Nicole (Nikki) Reinemann is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering with an appointment in Chemical Engineering. Dr. Reinemann received her Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in 2018 where she was an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. At the University of Mississippi, her alma mater, she graduated with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry and was awarded the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. Dr. Reinemann's research interests include investigating the biophysics of cytoskeletal hierarchy (systems that include molecular motors, proteins, microtubules, actin, etc.) and the implications of their synergy in vital life processes such as cell division and motility using a biophysical technique called optical tweezers. Dr. Reinemann teaches courses in biological transport, bioprocess engineering, and undergraduate research.
