My research combines medical/synchrotron imaging and in-vivo and in-vitro experiments with multiscale finite element modelling to (i) comprehensively evaluate existing prostheses performance and develop novel devices with improved performance and (ii) study bone and soft tissue biomechanics to understand biomechanical injuries including bone fractures and pressure sores. These injuries affect a large proportion of the population but are most common in the elderly population and in patients with chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, diabetes and spinal chord injury as well as amputees, wheelchair users and bed-ridden patients. Though my research I aspire to improve injury prevention, care and treatment.
