Research

Dr. Bowden's primary research interests are in spinal biomechanics and medical device design, with an emphasis on developing an improved understanding of the mechanical triggers for low back pain. He uses non-linear finite element analysis, medical imaging, and mechanical testing to characterize the responses of biological soft tissues.

He has a strong educational focus on developing engineering leaders who will recognize and act on opportunities to make the world a better place.
