Expert Witness - Biomechanical/Mechanical Engineering


Dr. Metzler received her Doctor of Science degree in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering and her Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University, and her Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University.

While completing her graduate degrees, Dr. Metzler not only completed research in the areas of dynamics, finite element analysis and applied mechanics, but also taught courses in engineering design, system dynamics and mechanism analysis.

Along with her academic achievements, Dr. Metzler has over a decade of varied industry experience including automotive engineering, industrial engineering, manufacturing engineering, quality engineering, and software development. Dr. Metzler brought this incredible breadth and depth of education and experience to SEA five years ago. 

In this time, her education and experience have allowed her to be involved in a variety of areas including design and failure analysis of biomedical and mechanical devices and products; biomechanical analysis of injury mechanisms; injury reconstruction and causation analysis; accident and failure investigation and analysis of mechanical systems; and occupational biomechanics, ergonomics, and human factors engineering.

Having over a decade of peer-reviewed publication experience, Dr. Metzler continues to be a leader in her fields and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Biomedical Engineering Society (BES), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International).
