Biography

Dr. Bertocci earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. She completed her PhD in Bioengineering in 1997 also from the University of Pittsburgh. Upon receiving her PhD, she became a faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology, where she remained through 2004. In 2004, Dr. Bertocci joined the University of Louisville, where she is a Professor in Bioengineering and Endowed Chair of Biomechanics. Dr. Bertocci is also the Director of the Injury Risk Assessment and Prevention Laboratory, established in 1997. She is a licensed professional engineer and was elected as an AIMBE Fellow in 2011.

Dr. Bertocci’s research interests include the application of injury biomechanics to the early detection of child abuse and the study of pediatric injury risk in falls. She also conducts research in the areas of wheelchair transportation safety and accessibility, and more recently has developed an interest in the field of canine orthopedic biomechanics. Dr. Bertocci has over 60 peer-reviewed journal papers and 120 conference proceedings. Her research has been funded through agencies that include the National Institutes for Health, Center for Disease Control, National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research, National Institute for Justice, the Arthritis Foundation and Paralyzed Veteran’s of America.
