Publications

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, where I work with researchers from the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab, the Mobilize Center, and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to study mechanical factors associated with osteoarthritis progression and patient response to surgical treatments. My postdoctoral mentor is Professor Scott L. Delp. I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at Brown University. There, I was part of the Orthopaedics Bioengineering Lab and the Visualization Research Lab, and my advisors were Professors Joseph J. Crisco and David H. Laidlaw.
