Mr Dermot O'Rourke

Casual Professional

College of Science and Engineering

Research expertise

Dr O'Rourke's area of expertise is using computational modelling to help assess the performance of total joint replacements. He completed his PhD at Flinders University (2017) which focussed on accounting for the influence of patient and surgical variability in the primary stability of cementless acetavular cups for pre-clinical testing.
