Kirsten Stoner joined the Biomechanics Research department as a Research Engineer in June 2010. Her main areas of research include knee joint simulation, arthroplasty implant retrieval studies, and bone mechanics. During her undergraduate and graduate education at Cornell University, Kirsten worked in Professor van der Meulenís lab where she gained experience in bone mechobiology and orthopaedic mechanical testing. Kirsten graduated from Cornell University in 2009 with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering and in 2010 with a Masters of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering.
