Ph.D. in Mechanics, University of Lyon, France.
Master of Science in Biomechanics, with honors, University of Lyon, France.
Master of Engineering in Mechanics, with honors, University of Lyon, France.

I work in the Center for Applied Biomechanics which goal is to improve the quality of life through the mitigation and prevention of injury. This is made possible by better understanding the mechanical response of the human body.

In my research, I focus on the development/evaluation of numerical models which give detailed insight of what happened in our body during car frontal collisions.
