Department of Biomechanics

Fernando Quevedo-González, PhD

Dr. Quevedo González received his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and his MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, both in Spain. After completing his PhD at École de Technologie Supérieure in Montreal, Canada, he joined HSS in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Quevedo’s expertise is in the evaluation of the interaction between implant and bone using finite element methods and in the design optimization of orthopedic implants.

Under the supervision of Joe Lipman, Director of Device Development in the Biomechanics Department, and Dr. Timothy Wright, Dr. Quevedo’s work is aimed at exploring the best uses of additive manufacturing (i.e., 3D printing) to optimize the shape and distribution of material properties of total joint replacements in order to improve their performance.
