Teaching/Research Focus: Design, biomechanics, computational mechanics
Ryan Willing received a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University at Kingston (Canada) in 2010, studying multiobjective design optimization of total knee replacement (TKR) implants, and supported by a NSERC Canadian Graduate Scholarship. Following graduate school, he accepted a post doctoral fellowship at the Hand and Upper Limb Centre (HULC) of St. Joseph's Health Centre and Western University in London (Canada). At the HULC, he developed a computational biomechanics program focused on improving joint health in the upper limb. His work has been published in the Journal of Biomechanics, Medical Engineering and Physics, and Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering. He was also a member of the Joint Motion Program (JuMP), a CIHR training program in musculoskeletal health research and leadership. Dr. Willing joined the Mechanical Engineering Department at Binghamton University in 2013, where his research interests include patient-specific implant design, multiobjective design optimization, rapid prototyping, computer methods and in-vitro simulation.
