Research Interests

  • Musculoskeletal biomechanics
  • Cartilage tissue friction and wear

Education

  • B.S. California Polytechnic State University, Mechanical Engineering, 2005
  • M.S. California Polytechnic State University, Mechanical Engineering, 2007

Sevan received both B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from California Polytechnic State University in the idyllic coastal town of San Luis Obispo. He moved to New York in Fall 2009 when he began work in Dr. Gerard Ateshian's Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory. His area of research interest includes tissue friction and wear, specifically the connection between the low friction coefficient and incredible wear resistant properties of articular cartilage.

In his spare time Sevan enjoys ice cream, cooking, cycling, and bearing the brunt of the lab's West Coast envy.
