Dennis E. Anderson, PhD
Dr. Anderson received his Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech in 2010, studying musculoskeletal biomechanics with a focus on aging and gait.
He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.
He is currently appointed as Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School. His interests lie in understanding musculoskeletal motion and loading,
age-related musculoskeletal changes and conditions, spine motion and loading in health and disease, and clinical translation of musculoskeletal biomechanics.
In pursuit of these goals, he has developed novel musculoskeletal modeling approaches to enable in vivo evaluations of spine motion and loading,
and established a motion analysis laboratory at BIDMC. These developments form the basis for ongoing research projects in the Anderson Lab.
