    Dr. Jessica Oakes

    Jessica Oakes is a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.Following completion of her PhD in 2013 (UC San Diego), she continued research in aerosol medicine as a postdoc fellow at INRIA Paris, France and at UC Berkeley. Now, Jessica directs the Respiratory Innovation and Simulation Team (RESIST); RESIST is focused on combining experimental and numerical techniques to predict and quantify aerosol fate, and the corresponding physiological response, in the lung.Specific projects in her lab focus on (1) coupling MRI-measured gas distributions with simulations to predict regional abnormalities in lung mechanics and to target aerosol therapeutics to specific regions of the lung, (2) quantifying physiological abnormalities in cardiopulmonary structure and function following cigarette and e-cigarette exposures in mouse models, and (3) determining chronic occupational health consequences of prolonged wildland fire smoke exposure in firefighters.More details can be found here.


    As an ISAM member, Jessica has led the efforts in creating the Early Career Investigator (ESI) networking group.As one of the ESI leaders, Jessica has organized networking lunches and group outings at the 2015, 2017, and 2019 ISAM meetings and has severed as an ad-hoc member of the ISAM board from 2017-2019.As an ISAM board member, Jessica will continue to integrate early career researchers into the society as well as lead communications efforts within the membership (e.g. ISAM newsletter, LinkedIn, and ISAM website).
