Personal profile


Research topics: Structural, mechanical, and chemical characterization of soft biological and biomedical tissues - relation mechanical stimuli-microstructure in tendons, articular cartilage and meniscus; - embryonic bone formation: growth plates and soft tissue-bone interfaces; - pathological heterotopic calcifications in soft tissues.

In particular: The aim of my research is to use phase contrast enhanced synchrotron X-ray tomography to answer some still open questions regarding Achilles tendon structure and tendon structural response to mechanical load during healing. Furthermore, I use high-resolution characterization techniques to investigate structural and mechanical changes in articular cartilage and meniscus associated with osteoarthritis progression. Other research topics that I currently working on range from embryonic bone formation in relation to mechanical stimuli to tissue mineralization and pathological calcification in soft tissues.
