Kaushik Mukherjee joined the Developmental Biomechanics group in 2017 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. His research is investigating the role of prenatal movements in joint shape development using a mechanobiological simulation of growth and morphogenesis. The project is funded by European Research Council. Prior to joining the Developmental Biomechanics Lab, Kaushik completed his undergraduate (B.Tech) in Mechanical Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology (India) in 2010. Thereafter, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (India) as a Joint M.Tech-Ph.D. student. He completed his master’s degree (M.Tech) in 2012 with specialisation in Mechanical Systems Design and continued his doctoral research in the field of orthopaedic biomechanics and implant design. His master’s dissertation was based on bone remodelling simulation around femoral prosthesis while his doctoral research was focused on bone ingrowth and remodelling around porous coated acetabular prosthesis using mechanobiology based finite element analysis.
