Research Focus

My research focuses on the repair and recovery of the orthopaedic trauma patient. I have basic science research interests in sensor technology and bone biology. Clinical research is centered on surgical options, care processes and recovery after trauma. I actively collaborate with basic scientists clinicians and others to drive mutual research goals.
