Tien Tuan Dao is a CNRS Research Engineer at the Biomechanics and Bioengineering Laboratory at the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC), France. His research interest relates to the modeling of human osteo-articular and musculoskeletal systems using biomechanics and knowledge-based engineering approaches.
Marie-Christine Ho Ba Tho is Professor of Mechanics at the UTC and currently Head of the Biomechanics and Bioengineering Laboratory associated with the CNRS (French center for national scientific research). Her research interests concern the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, with her recent work focusing on the modeling of uncertainties of the biomechanics data and their propagation in the development of medical computer-aided system diagnosis.
