Nikolaos Papachatzis

Nikos is a postdoctoral associate in Yale’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. He earned his Ph.D. in 2022 from the Department of Biomechanics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, mentored by Kota Takahashi. Currently, Nikos is developing mathematical and comparative experimental approaches to understand how mechanical forces have shaped the morphology of primates’ lower and upper extremities, including humans. He aims to incorporate scientific perspectives from different fields to understand why the human body moves and looks the way it does, translating biological principles into technological applications to lessen or prevent locomotion-related health issues.
