Dr. Aarti Shenoy joined the Biomechanics department at HSS as a Postdoctoral Fellow in February 2021. Aarti will be designing and conducting retrieval analysis studies with hip and spinal devices in collaboration with the Arthroplasty service. Her research will focus on material science aspects within orthopedic devices: structure-property-processing interactions and their effects on clinical outcomes. Aarti is interested in biomedical alloys, their microstructures and how alloy microstructure might affect mechanical properties of the material and the device as well as device performance.
Aarti received her PhD in Bioengineering from Clemson University as part of Dr. Jeremy Gilbert’s research group. Her research was focused on test method development to evaluate hip implant mechanical and electrochemical performance, retrieval analysis using microscopy techniques, and studying macrophage-tribocorrosion interactions in vitro.
Aarti also holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering from University of Mumbai, India and a Master of Science in Bioengineering from Syracuse University, NY.
