Jeff Hoffman joined the Department of Biomechanics as a Research Engineer in March 2019. His main areas of research at HSS include studying the mechanics of the Foot and Ankle.
He graduated from the University of Delaware in 2016 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, and from Drexel University in 2018 with a Master’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering. At Delaware, Jeff worked as an undergraduate researcher where he studied the effects of functional electrical stimulation during walking in pediatric subjects with cerebral palsy. During his graduate studies at Drexel, Jeff collaborated with researchers at Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia to investigate biomechanical changes in spinal motion which occur throughout pediatric development.
