Lara Esquivel


I completed my undergraduate at Cardiff University where I contributed to leading biomechanics research analysing joint kinematics using a combination of fluoroscopy and motion-capture-based methods. 

During my Masters at the University of Leeds I developed methods to incorporate patient-specific bone properties into Finite Element Analyses methods. 

I am currently completing a PhD aiming to optimise the use of osteochondral grafts for the treatment of cartilage lesions, utilising a combination of biomechanical and computational analyses.
