Dr. Fernando Quevedo González is an Assistant Scientist in the Biomechanics Department at HSS. He 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 González’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.

Research Description

Dr. Quevedo Gonazalez's research is focused on understanding the biomechanical factors that affect the longevity of total joint replacements. To this end, he relies on computational models to quantify the effect of implant design, patient factors, and surgical choices on the load transfer across the joint and the bone-implant interaction.
