Research Summary

Dr. Anderson endeavors in research to utilize his expertise in engineering mechanics to answer scientific questions in a manner that not only adds to the understanding of musculoskeletal disorders but that can also be used to improve treatment. He employs the tools of image analysis, computer modeling, and computational stress analysis to objectively quantify phenomena hitherto only assessed subjectively. An area of emphasis has been understanding the abnormal mechanics involved in the development of osteoarthritis, one of the most common causes of disability in adults, especially as it develops following trauma to an articular joint. A second focus of his research is in expanding the value of simulation for surgical skills training and performance assessment. Dr. Anderson leads a team of engineers and orthopaedic surgeons working to develop an education and research program to better and more safely train orthopaedic residents in their surgical skills.
