Bio

Dr. de Guzman was born and raised in Bataan (an important WWII battle site), Philippines. He worked in the biotechnology and environmental industries after receiving his undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of the Philippines (Diliman), then moved to the US and obtained a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Wayne State University (Detroit, MI). His postdoctoral jobs, afterwards, were at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (Winston-Salem, NC) and at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA), where he conducted extensive research on biomaterials, tissue engineering, protein chemistry, and surface science. At Hofstra University (since 2014), he is currently teaching general engineering and bioengineering courses, specializing in programs: MATLAB & Simulink (MathWorks) for programming and numerical computations, COMSOL Multiphysics (COMSOL) for simulations, and Inventor (Autodesk) for 3D drawing, and runs his research group called Bioengineering Materials Lab. He is also very interested in applied mathematical concepts, particularly in vector calculus, 1st order constitutive partial differential equations (PDEs): such as Hooke’s, Fick’s, Fourier’s, and Newton’s viscosity laws, and 2nd order linear PDEs: elliptic (steady-state, Laplace’s, Poisson’s, and Helmholtz), parabolic (diffusion-advection and heat), and hyperbolic (wave) functions.
