Associate Professor Justin Fernandez - Title: New ways to look at muscle mechanics

Abstract -

In this talk I will discuss efforts to encapsulate traditional continuum muscle mechanics models with machine learning for rapid prediction and translation to the clinic. Secondly, I will discuss an alternative mechanics-based method to estimate muscle fibre directions compared to diffusion tensor imaging. Both studies will be presented with a focus on the gastrocnemius.

Biography -

Justin Fernandez is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science and Auckland Bioengineering Institute, University of Auckland. He graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Engineering Science (1999) and a PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Auckland (2004). Between 2005 and 2010 he completed an ARC postdoctoral fellowship at Melbourne University in Mechanical Engineering and was a research scientist at the CSIRO (Monash University). He is a Principal Investigator in the musculoskeletal modelling group where he leads research into computational biomechanics, orthopaedics, sports science and forensics. His work integrates gait analysis, wearable sensors, large population data, statistical models and computational mechanics. His research strongly focuses on clinician engagement.
