Dr.Todd Fenton, PhD.,
Anthropology Department at Michigan State University
PhD. Anthropology, University of Arizona, 1998.
Forensic Anthropology, Physical Anthropology, Bioarchaeology,
Analysis of skeletal trauma as well as techniques in human identification.
His current research is funded by the National Institute of Justice and is titled
"A Forensic Pathology Tool to Predict Pediatric Skull Fracture Patterns".
He is a Co-PI on this project with Roger Haut, Department of Mechanical Engineering,
College of Engineering, and Walt Smith, Department of Radiology, College of Medicine.
Dr.Anil Jain, PhD.,
University Distinguished Professor
Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Michigan State University
Education: PhD. Ohio State University, 1973.
Research interests: Pattern recognition,
Computer vision, and Biometric recognition. He holds six patents
in the area of fingerprint recognition. He is the author of several books,
including: Introduction to Biometrics (2011), Handbook of Biometrics (2007),
Handbook of Multibiometrics (2006), Handbook of Face Recognition (first edition: 2005;
second edition 2011), Handbook of Fingerprint Recognition (first edition: 2003, second edition: 2009),
Markov Random Fields: Theory and Applications (1993), and Algorithms For Clustering Data (1988).
Dr. Eric Meyer, Ph.D,
Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering,
Director – Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory,
Lawrence Technological Unversity
Education: PhD Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics),
Michigan State University 2008
Research interests: Advance the experimental
biomechanics understanding by providing practical training to
engineering and medical students and advancing the boundary
of knowledge through biomechanics research. To achieve these
goals we combine in vivo testing of human and animal subjects
with cadaver and surrogate in vitro models to understand injury
mechanisms and predict failure risk. Finally, our lab collaborates
with clinicians to develop preventative and regenerative treatments
for soft tissue damage and degeneration.
Dr. John Powell
Dr. Powell serves as a consultant for sports injury prevention and
safety for the National Football League and the Big Ten Conference
and is a member of the Osteopathic National Center for Orthopedic
Research (ONCOR) Board of Directors. He also serves as Chair of
the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Research Group. Dr. Powell’s
research efforts focus on the epidemiology of sports injuries and
injury prevention at all levels of competition. He has recently
joined the faculty in the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory and
has initiated new research efforts in the area that addresses the
mechanics of injury.
