Department of Biomechanics

Christina Esposito, PhD

Dr. Esposito is a postdoctoral fellow in the Biomechanics Department.  She joined HSS in 2013 after completing her PhD at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

She first started in orthopaedic research in 2005 with Dr. Pat Campbell at the Implant Retrieval Laboratory in Orthopaedic Hospital in Los Angeles.  She was involved in studies on metal-on-metal resurfacings, particle isolation and characterization, and histological review of joint tissues.  In 2008, she moved to Sydney, Australia to continue doing implant retrieval research.  Her PhD focused on mechanisms and implications wear in ceramic-on-ceramic hip replacements.  Her PhD supervisors were A/Prof William L. Walter, Prof. William R. Walsh and A/Prof Pat Campbell.

She has published papers on ceramic-on-ceramic and metal-on-metal hip replacements, and the biological response to wear debris.  Her research at HSS continues to focus on wear mechanisms in hip and knee replacements and how wear impacts the performance of these devices.
