Research focuses on orthopedic biomechanics, with particular emphasis on soft tissues such as tendons and ligaments.  Interested in understanding structure-function relationships in healthy tissues and quantifying changes that occur in injury and disease.  Utilize in vivo and in vitro experimental studies, as well as computational models, to approach these questions across multiple length scales.
