Aurand, Alex


Alex's work focuses on developing the tools needed to systematically improve the way we prevent, evaluate, and treat spine and other musculoskeletal disorders. This includes advancing personalized dynamic biomechanical models that can be used to understand the causal pathways of these disorders, as well developing a software platform to accelerate data collection, model validation, and actionable insight.
