Zoe Englander
Medical Instructor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

I am a Biomedical Engineer specializing in the development and application of medical imaging techniques to study in vivo biomechanics. I am currently a Medical Instructor in the Department Orthopaedic Surgery at Duke University School of Medicine. During my PhD, I developed an automatic registration software that can be used to integrate high-speed biplanar radiographic images with projections of 3D joint models derived from magnetic resonance (MR) images. This technique can be used to study in vivo knee joint kinematics and soft tissue deformations, including ligament strain and cartilage compression, during dynamic activities. I have also applied these techniques to study the in vivo mechanics of the ACL and patellar tendon during dynamic activities. During my postdoctoral training, I worked on the development of a musculoskeletal model to estimate the magnitude of in vivo quadriceps force acting at the knee joint using subject specific measurements of knee anatomy obtained using imaging. My current research interest involve the use of advanced MR imaging techniques in conjunction with high-speed biplanar radiography to study neuromuscular control.
