Personal profile

Membership of Professional Bodies

Member of the Institution fo Mechanical Engineers (MIMechE)

Fellow of the Higher Education Authority (FHEA)

General

Dr Patrick Geoghegan joined Aston University in 2017 as a lecturer in Biomedical Engineering. He currently teaches Biomedical Engineering Project 1 and Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis for Biomedical Engineers in year 3. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (MIMEchE) and a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

Dr Geoghegan did a Masters of Engineering in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He then completed his PhD in Mechancical Engineering, specialising in Biofluids at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Following this he did post-doctoral research at the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (Forensic Service Centre), New Zealand and then at the University of Canterbury.

Dr Geoghegan’s research focus is in two main areas. Firstly, in the field of biofluids, where he uses his expertise in experimental biofluid mechanics to simulate complex medical problems. He complements this with a knowledge of computational fluid dynamics.  His second focus is in forensics. He has expertise in Blood stain pattern analysis and knife crime investigation.
