Thursday, 31 January, 12:30 pm GMT
We are delighted to announce that Professor Oliver Röhrle from the University of Stuttgart will be visiting the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine on 31 January 2019 and will give a seminar on ‘Modelling the musculoskeletal system’.
About Oliver Röhrle
Oliver Röhrle is Professor for “Continuum Biomechanics and Mechanobiology” at the Cluster of Excellence for Simulation Technology (SimTech) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and a Senior Research Expert at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (Fraunhofer IPA) at Stuttgart. He received a Master of Science in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, USA (1999) and his Diplom in “Wirtschaftsmathematik (Mathematics and Economical Affairs)” at the University of Ulm (2000). After his PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA (2004), he spent four years as a research scientist at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, before returning to Germany in 2008. His research focuses on various aspects of the musculoskeletal system, e.g., on novel chemo-electromechanical skeletal muscle models, biophysical recruitment models, virtual EMG predictions, continuum mechanical homogenisation techniques for skeletal muscle tissues and forward-dynamics simulations of multi-muscle systems using three-dimensional continuum-mechanical skeletal muscle models. Moreover, he is interested in dental applications.
