Research information:

I am actively involved in joint mechanics, muscle modeling, measurements of in vivo mechanical properties of human tissues, electromyography, biomechanics of sport injuries and sport biomechanics. My major research programs focus on the mechanics of the human knee joint of healthy and pathological subjects, as well as to the biomechanical assessment of the mobility of patients with a total hip and knee arthroplasty. The most recent research program funded is on the development of a musculoskeletal model of the hip joint for patients suffering of femoroacetabular impingement.
