Professor Sucosky was born in Nice (France), in 1976. He received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers, Paris, France, in 1996, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) in 2000 and 2005, respectively.
From 2005 to 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA). From 2008 to 2015, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN). From 2015 to 2020, he served as an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Wright State University (Dayton, OH). In August 2020, he joined the department of Mechanical Engineering at Kennesaw State University as an Associate Professor. Professor Sucosky is the Director of the Multi-Scale Cardiovascular Bioengineering Laboratory, which explores the role played by mechanical forces in cardiovascular disease. His research interests are in biofluid mechanics, hemodynamics, cardiovascular mechanobiology, heart valve disease and medical devices. He is also directing the new Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Engineering program, which launched in Fall 2021.
Dr. Sucosky was a recipient of a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the American Heart Association in 2006, a Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology in 2008, and a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2011. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health. Professor Sucosky is an elected fellow of the American Heart Association and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and a member of the Biomedical Engineering Society and the Heart Valve Society. He is also serving as an associate editor in Frontiers in Physics, Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, and Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine.
