Research Statement

Hemanth joined the lab in 2007 as a research associate after completing his master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University. His current research is focused on the effect of cruciate ligament injuries and their repair on knee joint biomechanics. Hemanth’s research interests include in-vivo and in-vitro joint kinematics, sports-related injuries, implant design, computational biomechanics, and soft tissue mechanics.
