Mathew T. Mathew’s major research focus is on the simulation of human artificial joints, biomechanics and the material degradation of implanted biomaterials used in dentistry and orthopedics.

Biomedical implants are increasingly used to help patients with disabilities achieve comfort and continue their healthy physical activities. The main objective of Mathew’s research is to increase the longevity of implants and determine the biocompatibility and stability of implants using an interdisciplinary approach.

Mathew and his group are also actively involved in developing new diagnostic tools for detecting implant derived circulating metal ions in the blood of patients who received metal implants.
