Education & Experience

Bradley is a postdoctoral fellow in the Biodynamics Lab in Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. His biomechanical engineering research involves using musculoskeletal modeling to investigate foot and ankle disorders. Bradley is interested in using musculoskeletal modeling to perform surgical planning. During his PhD, he was a clinical research coordinator for two projects investigating hallux valgus. Bradley is also interested in clinical translation and hoping to apply some tools and ideas used in research, within a clinical setting.

Research Experience

Doctoral Research
Developed 3D models of patients with hallux valgus and normal controls to investigate clinical efficacy of current imaging techniques and explored biomechanical differences in loading between both groups with FEA models.

Masters Research
Developed a musculoskeletal model of the tibia to explore the how landing effects the location of occurrence of shin splints and stress fractures with FEA.

Commercial Translation Experience

Filed one invention disclosure for early stage review “Novel Device for Weightbearing in a Horizontal CT Scanner” (2014).
