    Summary

    My group focuses on the links between the mechanics of the joints (particularly the hip and knee) and the development, progression and treatment of osteoarthritis. We develop new methods using medical imaging (such as MRI and CT scans) to study joint mechanics and cartilage health. We then apply these methods to assess how mechanical factors relate to changes in joint cartilage.
