Charlie Yongpravat

Ph.D. 2015

Research Interests

  • Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Education

  • Sc.B. Brown University, Mechanical Engineering, 2007
  • Sc.M. Brown University, Solid Mechanics, 2008

Charlie first became interested in biomechanical research at Brown University, where he taught goats to walk on a treadmill for gait kinematic analysis. He is currently part of a collaborative effort between the Mechanical Engineering Department and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Columbia University with Dr. Ateshian and Dr. Ahmad. Charlie's research focus is total shoulder arthroplasty and improving the efficacy of relevant surgical techniques and parameters.

If not in lab, Charlie can be found skateboarding around NYC and photographing his adventures.
