As a post-doc I work on the bone-implant interface. We are interested in investigating how the bone close to an implant (a prosthesis for example) reacts to mechanical loading and how local damage leads to fracture.

Using animal experimentation we combine mechanical testing with tomographic imaging (using X-rays and Neutrons) to obtain an evolution of the bone-implant interface during the loading. With image analysis and especially digital volume correlation (DVC) we then can assess the local mechanical characteristics, damage behavior and failure resistance in the bone close to the implant.
