Research Focus

My research focuses on the repair and recovery of the orthopaedic trauma patient. Encompassing fundamental and clinical aspects of healing, my interests include implant and fracture optimization, stem cells and neovascularization, biosensors and evaluation of novel hardware and surgical approaches to expedite fracture repair, and innovation and business models in surgical discovery. I actively collaborate with basic scientists, clinicians and others to drive mutual research goals.
