Dr. Meyer received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics) from Michigan State University. The primary topic of his research was lower extremity biomechanics during sports injury. He then completed his post-doctoral training at the Centre for Bioengineering at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in cartilage tissue engineering and mechanobiology. He teaches “Introduction to Biomechanics”, “Tissue Mechanics”, “Engineering in Orthopedics”, and a new graduate-level “Cell Mechanobiology” course at Lawrence Technological University. He has also established the Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory with the goal to advance experimental biomechanics understanding by providing practical training to students and advancing the boundary of knowledge through translational research. He has published one book chapter and 40 peer-reviewed journal articles that have been cited more than 900 times.
