Please join us on Wednesday, September 28th at 7pm a NestED talk by Kevin Moerman, a biomechanical and design engineer at MIT Biomechatronics. Moerman will speak about his research interests, which include soft tissue biomechanics, finite element analysis, continuum mechanics, image-based modelling, image-processing, robotics and medical device design.
Moerman holds a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering, a Master’s degree in Bioengineering and a PhD degree on the topic of soft tissue biomechanics (2012, Trinity College Dublin). He joined the Biomechtronics group in 2015 as post-doctoral associate at MIT Media Lab, where his current focus is on computational modelling for prosthetic socket design. During his academic career, Moerman has amassed a wealth of computational tools for image-based modelling and inverse finite element analysis, resulting in the creation of his GIBBON open-source software project.
