Dr Mariana Kersh
Dr Mariana Kersh
is a McKenzie Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Dept of Mechanical Engineering
at The University of Melbourne
Dr Kersh completed her undergraduate degree in English at the University of Texas-Austin in 1994 and after working in industry, began undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2002.
In 2005, she received a Graduate Engineering Research Scholars Fellowship and earned a Masters in Engineering in 2007.
received a National Science Foundation PreDoctoral Research Fellowship and completed her
doctoral studies on ligament biomechanics and material modeling in 2010.
This research involved a comprehensive specimen specific study of the mechanical properties of the passive soft tissues of the knee.
Dr Kersh was an inaugural recipient of the John McKenzie Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship, one of ten awarded university wide, and works as a research fellow in the Human Motion Laboratory under Professor Marcus Pandy in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Melbourne School of Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Australia.
