Research Statement

Ali joined the Bioengineering Laboratory at the MGH to pursue his PhD program at Massachusetts Institute Technology in the Spring of 2006. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab focusing on the in-vivo kinematics of the knee joint and the deformation of the tibiofemoral articular cartilage in normal and injured subjects. Ali's research interests include Biomechanics, Sports Medicine, Soft Tissue Mechanics, Osteoarthritis, Cartilage Deformation and Computational Biomechanics. His doctoral research was focused on the estimation of the in-vivo forces in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) using advanced imaging techniques combined with a robotic testing system.
