    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My focus throughout my research has been to explore the human condition under disease and investigate the means to improve medical treatments using engineering applications. To date my research projects include: studying the mechanics of shoulder implant loosening; investigating the use of accelerometers to monitor lower limb fractures; and co-designing an in-situ tooth model vital for testing dental therapies. The techniques used to investigate these clinical problems include: 

    • Bespoke rig designs and mechanical testing
    • Finite Element Modelling and Analysis (FEM & FEA)
    • MicroCT and CT imaging
    • Image and signal processing

    My current areas of interests are:

    • Fracture fixation
    • upper limb joint replacements
