Maria Pastrama

I am a bone and cartilage researcher, book reader, language learner, and world traveler.

I always want to know ''why'' and ''how''. Useful in my scientific career, difficult in everyday life :-)


Post-doctoral researcher


My research blends computational and experimental methods to study bone and cartilage mechanics and understand mechanical requirements for biomaterials replacing these tissues.

Research areas

Cartilage and bone mechanics, tissue engineering and imaging
