Anna Gustafsson

Postdoctoral Fellow


Anna Gustafsson joined the Biomechanics group at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund University, in January 2014 when she did her master's thesis work on the mechanics of the Achilles tendon. Her next project was a finite element study of an atypical fracture in the femoral shaft in collaboration with the Orthopaedic Department at Linköping University. At the moment she is working on a computational model to study damage development in bone on multiple length scales. Her main focus is to study crack propagation at the microscale in cortical bone in order to understand how and why the resistance to fracture is impaired in old bone tissue.
