Suza joined the Department of Biomechanics in 2010 as a Research Engineer after completing her B.S. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Brown University, where she began her work in orthopedics. Her main areas of research at HSS include studying the impact of foot and ankle surgical procedures on ankle function, studying knee joint simulation, and collaborating with residents and fellows from surgical services on biomechanical studies. She also conducts industry and core sponsored mechanical testing and works on implant retrieval studies with the Adult Reconstruction Joint Replacement service.
