Dr. Karen Gordon received her PhD from the University of Western Ontario in 2004. In 2004, she held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Calgary. Gordon joined the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph in 2004, where she is now a Professor and the Associate Dean (Academic) for the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
Gordon’s research focuses on biomechanics and understanding the mechanical behaviour of the soft tissues that constitute the musculoskeletal system. This information helps inform the study of disease etiology, injury and healing mechanisms, the efficacy of clinical interventions, and replacement biomaterials. Key areas of focus include:
