Jonathan Glenday joined Hospital for Special Surgery in March 2020 as a Postdoctoral Fellow to work in in collaboration with the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Service. His research is focused on understanding the effect of surgical choices during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on the interaction between the implant and the bone. To this end, he aims to combine computational musculoskeletal and finite element models to quantify the effect of component design and alignment on the kinematics, kinetics, and fixation of TKA.
Jonathan obtained both his undergraduate degree in Electromechanical Engineering and his doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Cape Town in South Africa. His doctoral research, which was conducted in collaboration with the Motion Analysis Laboratory at Hospital for Special Surgery, focused on the optimization of prosthesis alignment for reverse total shoulder arthroplasty using computational modelling. Jonathan completed his doctoral degree in 2018 and, in 2019, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Tübingen in Germany. During his time there, he developed a musculoskeletal model of the wrist to assess the risk factors associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.
