Meet Our Innovators

Christian Puttlitz, PhD

Department Head (ME) & Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering

Areas of Collaborative Interest

  • Soft-tissue modeling
  • Orthopaedic problems
  • Licensing avaliable technologies

Dr. Puttlitz and his team have global interests in how engineering mechanics can be applied towards solving orthopaedic-related problems. These interests typically include both experimental and computational modeling in order to better understand the underlying tissue-level mechanics and related mechanobiology. Current areas of investigation in his lab include non-linear viscoelastic modeling of soft tissues, technology development for prediction of fracture healing outcomes, and additive manufacturing for scaffold and regenerative medicine application.
