Current Work

IMMC Impact Biomechanics

The field of Impact Biomechanics seeks to understand the response of the human body to high-rate loading, and the prediction of injury potential, leading to the development of improved protection for the human body. Tools used in this research include advanced human numerical models, experimental testing and high-rate materials characterization.

Applications include occupant simulation for automotive crashworthiness and the improvement of sports and other protection devices. Collaborations include both industry and government.
