Andres is a mechanical engineer and Master in Biomedical Engineering from the National University of Colombia (Bogotá, Colombia), Specialist in Bioengineering from the Francisco José de Caldas District University (Bogotá, Colombia), and Doctor in Biomedical Engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology ( TU/e, Eindhoven, The Netherlands). Among his topics of interest are Biomechanics, computational modeling and analysis by (micro) finite elements. Among the research projects that Andrés has carried out are: the estimation of the mechanical properties of computational models of bone tissue, the simulation of the process of osteogenesis and healing of bone fractures, and the experimental and computational estimation of mechanical properties in bone tissue. intact and fractured. Currently his new interests are around biomaterials, additive manufacturing and tissue engineering.
