Dr. Carrington earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Mississippi State University
while working as a research and development engineer with Kimberly-Clark and Halyard Health. He went
on to obtain his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Clemson University before serving as a joint post-doctoral
Research Fellow between Clemson and Aravis Biotechnologies, LLC. Dr. Carrington’s scientific research
focused on injury prevention through the development of innovative devices that investigated the forces
and accelerations applied during static and dynamic situations. This includes special attention on spinal
injury biomechanics, tolerance levels, and associated injury mechanisms for the intervertebral discs. He
has also performed novel experimentation with cadavers, surrogates, and computational models that
evaluated human joint kinematics and kinetics during potentially injurious scenarios.
Dr. Carrington continues to study injury biomechanics through various scientific test programs, including
automotive sled tests and crash tests, as well as studies that implement advanced biomechanical tools
such as instrumented anthropomorphic test devices. He has hands-on experience investigating the
dynamic responses of individuals during inertial and impact environments, such as motor vehicle
collisions or slip, trip, and fall events. This training and experience provide a unique understanding of
physics and engineering in the context of human anatomy and physiology, enabling Dr. Carrington to
perform thorough scientific investigations of a wide range of circumstances.
