Quentin Goossens

Post-doctoral Researcher - Electromechanical Engineering

KU Leuven, Belgium

Quentin obtained his M.Sc. degree in Electromechanical Engineering at Group T Engineering College in 2013 after which he obtained a PhD degree in Engineering Technology at KU Leuven in January 2020. Quentin’s PhD research focused on the development of a vibro-acoustic method to assess the stability of cementless total hip arthroplasty implants. From January 2020 on he worked as a postdoctoral researcher within the Smart Instrumentation research group under supervision of Prof. Kathleen Denis. His current work focuses on the development and valorization of smart medical instruments that implement vibro-acoustic techniques to support orthopedic surgeons in their decision making in total hip arthroplasty. Quentin’s research interests include orthopedic implant stability assessment; bone-implant micromotion measurements, the application of vibro-acoustic techniques on biomechanical structures for structural health monitoring and the development of corresponding clinically implementable measurement methods.
