Research Statement


Dr Pal's research expertise lies in the field of orthopaedic biomechanics. He has worked extensively on design, development and analysis of orthopaedic implants. His approach is a combination of Finite Element (FE) modelling and advanced experimental techniques. His current focus is on implant fixation, a key area concerning how implants are secured to the bone and the influence of implant design on the long-term integrity of such fixation. He is also interested in mechanobiology of bone and gait analysis.
