Ewa Speiz



Ewa Spiesz has a wide experience in bioengineering including Biomaterials (MSc), Biomechanics (PhD) and Biophysics (postdoc), with a focus on collagenous tissues structure-function relationships at multiple scales. Her training lies predominantly in relating the physical behaviour of tissues (tendon and bone) with the underlying biology and/or physiology using experimental and computational methods. Techniques applied involve mechanical testing, nanoindentation, atomic force microscopy, quantitative backscattered electron imaging (qBEI), quantitative polarized light microscopy (qPLM) and micro computed tomography, as well as micromechanical homogenization, finite element and statistical mechanical simulations.
