I am a PhD student with a research interest in developing an adaptive mechanobiological algorithm for prediction of osteoarthritis progression. The novel algorithm considers cartilage degradation via tissue inflammation and abnormal biomechanics. Calibration and validation of the algorithm is done against extensive experimental findings. In my research I use COMSOL Multiphysics and Abaqus for the finite element analysis.
