My research focuses on multiscale biomechanics and structure-function relationships of musculoskeletal soft tissues and joints. I study the fundamental principles that govern how soft tissues function in healthy conditions, how these relationships change in injury/disease, and how connective tissue damage can be better prevented, treated, or replaced.

I felt very fortunate to attend the FOE meeting, where I met many accomplished and inspiring engineers, each seeking to make the world a better place in their own way. It was exciting to make connections with individuals from many diverse fields and learn more about their work.
