Pankaj Pankaj is Professor of Computational Biomechanics at the School of Engineering’s Institute for Bioengineering at the University of Edinburgh. He works in the field of computational solid mechanics with a focus on applications for clinical problems in orthopedics, in particular on the biomechanical behavior of bone and bone-implant systems. As a senior fellow at the Collegium, he explored the relationship between aesthetics, design, and function in natural and engineered products. He convened a workshop on this issue, bringing together experts from industrial design, architecture, mechanical and biomechanical engineering, and anthropology.
