Dr. Robinson is a Senior Biomechanist at ARCCA specializing in forensic analysis of injuries and biomechanics.  His specific areas of expertise include Human Injury Biomechanics and Tolerance, Vehicular Accident Reconstruction, Injury Mechanism and Mitigation Analysis, Impact and Inertial Trauma Analysis, and Slip/Trip/Fall Analysis.

He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, during which he took elective courses in orthopedic biomechanics and biomaterials, and interned at the major medical device company Medtronic. After obtaining his undergraduate degree, he joined the Spine Biomechanics Laboratory at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

He then enrolled in the Biomedical Engineering department at Columbia University, where he earned Master of Science, Master of Philosophy, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Biomedical Engineering.  Through the course of earning his Ph.D., he independently planned and executed studies in the field of bone mechanobiology, exploring mechanisms by which bones sense and respond to mechanical stimuli. Beyond experimental work, Dr. Robinson served as a mentor to undergraduate and Master’s level research associates and was a Teaching Assistant for Solid Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics courses.
