Dr. Geissler is a Senior Biomechanist and his academic background in biomedical engineering, as well as his professional experience in crashworthiness, serve as the cornerstone for his expertise in accident reconstruction and injury mechanism analysis. Dr. Geissler utilizes these skills to quantify the severity and impact mechanics of vehicular collisions, slips, trips, falls, and other loading scenarios and to evaluate the human kinematic responses to these events while also investigating potential injury mechanisms and associated injury tolerances. During his time as a graduate student, Dr. Geissler designed and conducted various orthopaedic research studies focused on investigating potential underlying mechanisms of atypical bone fractures that are associated with long-term bisphosphonate therapy.

Dr. Geissler has completed coursework that included statics and dynamics, advanced biomechanics, orthopaedic biomechanics, computational biomechanics, and tissue engineering, and his work has been recognized by the orthopaedic community through multiple presentations at annual society conference proceedings.

Dr. Geissler also performs scientific testing of sports equipment to evaluate performance and proposes new designs that mitigate trauma and injury.
