Personal profile

Research interests

My research interest is the treatment of articular cartilage injuries, specifically the mechanical quality of tissue formed by different surgical treatments. I am interested in studying how different post-operative protocols may alter the mechanical quality of this tissue and investigating the genetic basis for healing after articular cartilage surgery.
