Research Statement

Tsung-Yuan joined the Bioengineering Laboratory at the Massachusetts General Hospital in the winter of 2011 after his obligatory military service in Taiwan. Tsung-Yuan received his PhD degree in the summer of 2010 from Institute of Biomedical Engineering, National Taiwan University. His doctoral research was aimed to implement a novel tracking technique using 3D CT data and single plane fluoroscopic images to register in-vivo 3D motion of the knee. Tsung-Yuan’s research interests include Imaging Biomechanics, Orthopaedic Engineering, Sports Science, Motion Analysis, and Computational Biomechanics.
