Dr. Howarth is a Forensic Biomechanist with Rochon Engineering specializing in assessments of injury potential and the likely mechanisms of injury. He completed his Ph.D. in biomechanics at the University of Waterloo. Dr. Howarth has published quantitative biomechanical research related to human motion, injury tolerance, and computational modeling in more than fifteen peer-reviewed scientific journals. Dr. Howarth has also presented his research findings as an invited speaker at international institutions. Principles and knowledge obtained from his research and education, as well as an in depth understanding of biomechanical literature, forms the basis for Dr. Howarth to assess injury potential from motor vehicle accidents as well as slip, trip, and fall cases.
