He has presented scientific findings at both medical and engineering conferences. Most recently, Dr. Rundell has performed research related to the mechanical causation of spinal disc herniations, lower extremity forces generated during rear-end automobile collisions, and the likelihood of sustaining closed-head injury during a rear-end collision.  Dr. Rundell will discuss the biomechanics associated with closed head injury, specifically infant closed head injury, and will field specific questions related to these cases.
