Amanda Wach joined the Department of Biomechanics at HSS in July 2015 as a research engineer. Her main areas of research at HSS include knee joint simulation, corrosion and wear of implants, and mechanical testing collaborations with residents and fellows.
During her undergraduate education at the University at Buffalo, Amanda spent time in research labs of varying fields, including biomedical engineering, mathematics, and computational chemistry. Amanda pursued a graduate education to further focus on biomechanics at Marquette University, where she characterized the mechanical behavior of ankle-foot orthoses, developing skills in motion analysis and mechanical testing.
Amanda graduated from SUNY Buffalo in 2013 with a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering and Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics, and from Marquette University in 2015 with a Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering.
