He received his Master’s degree on January 30 2001 on the Relationship between the hip-joint loading and the capital epiphyseal growth plate orientation. During this research he got interested in cartilage mechanics and finite element modeling. He decided to continue in this field and started this Ph.D. study in February 2001, within the section Bone- and Orthopedic Biomechanics of the department of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. He successfully defended his promotion thesis called "An explanation for the onset of mechanically induced cartilage damage" on the 1st of February 2005.
After 2 years as a Postdoc at the Eindhoven University of Technology, he left the field of biomechnanics and started his current job at Fokker Landing Gear. Fokker Landing Gear is aerospace company specialized in the developed, production, testing and certification of landing Gears. At Fokker Landing Gear Wouter Wilson is working as an Specialist Development Engineer at the R&D department. His work is mainly focused on the development of numerical tools for modeling and understanding the behavior of composites.
Since October 2010 he has a part-time position as an Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology to supervise PhD-student is the Orthopedic Biomechanics group.
