December 06, 2016

Pierre-Yves Rohan is assistant professor at ENSAM Paris, where he develops research activities in geometric and mechanical modelling of the lower limb. He graduated in computational mechanics from ENSEIRB-MATMECA and received his PhD in Mechanics and Engineering from the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne. In the course of his internships as an undergraduate student at the Intelligent systems for medicine laboratory (ISML) of the University of Western Australia and his postdoctoral activities at the TIMC-IMAG laboratory in Grenoble, he has developed methods for predicting the biomechanical response of biological soft tissues. He is now part of the Institut de Biomecanique Humaine Georges Chapak and focuses on the development of numerical models of the lower limb with the aim of providing quantitative tools for clinical help in diagnosis, and for the follow up or surgery planning.
