Chelsea joined the Department of Biomechanics at HSS as a Research Engineer in July 2014. Her main areas of research at HSS include arthroplasty related implant retrieval studies which focus examining wear patterns and modes of failure in various total hip and knee systems. During her undergraduate education at Clemson University, Chelsea developed interests in implant retrieval and orthopaedic engineering and pathology. Chelsea graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Bioengineering from Clemson in May 2014.
