Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the application of engineering principles to inform the diagnosis, progression and treatment of orthopaedic pathologies. Focuses are upon developmental and traumatic injury to the lower extremities, but extend to all joints of the body. I combine in-vivo biomechanical assessment, medical imaging, and computational modeling to quantify movement patterns, bony morphology and muscle mechanics that collectively contribute to injury or osteoarthritis development. This knowledge is then used to improve conservative and surgical treatment choices.
