Ms. Kelbaugh is a Biomechanist at ARCCA specializing in injury biomechanics, focusing on injury mechanisms and associated injury tolerances by analyzing the kinematics and kinetics of the human body during a specific event. She received a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Temple University, and a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University. During her time as a Graduate Research Engineer at Drexel, she contributed to the mechanical analysis of foam liners utilized in military-grade helmets via quasi-static loading and unloading experiments.
She also conducted stress and strain analytics on foams under compressive forces using cameras and digital image correlation to assess the microscopic mechanism of deformation and collaborated with the Office of Naval Research, Team Wendy, Sandia National Laboratory, and Brown University to maintain long-term research interests in developing military protective equipment from multifaceted perspectives. Ms. Kelbaugh has also worked as a Chemistry Adjunct Professor at Temple University’s College of Science and Technology.
