VP of Biomechanical Engineering

John Droge, Ph.D. is the Vice President of Biomechanical Engineering with MRA Forensic Sciences. For more than 16 years, John has provided consulting and expert witness services in biomechanics, accident reconstruction, and human factors. John’s mission is to provide world-class expertise with an exceptional commitment to excellence and integrity.

John’s experience combines a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, with a master’s in biomedical engineering, including a bachelor’s in biology. Biomechanical focus areas include the analysis of low-speed collisions, occupant kinematics, personal injury, seat belts and airbags, and traumatic brain injury. Accident reconstruction focus areas include vehicle dynamics, ACM and ECM downloads and data, and contributing factors. Human factors focus areas include perception and reaction, night-time visibility, and premise liability.

John also holds an Adjunct Faculty appointment at the University of Utah in Mechanical Engineering. Current research interests include automotive seat design and its effect on injury potential. 

Before coming to MRA, John gained experience as a Research Engineer in the departments of Physical Therapy and Orthopedic Biomechanics at the University of Utah.  During this time, scientific research added value and depth to his experience with projects spanning the biomechanics of human movement, to failure analysis of human tissues, and to injury mechanisms associated with a motor vehicle impact.

Outside of the office, John enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, off-roading, rebuilding old trucks, photography, and mastering his BBQ skills.
