Projects per year
I joined the department of Biomedical Engineering as a postdoctoral research associate in November 2018, immediately after an Engineering Doctorate in Medical Devices also from the department. Previously, I completed and MPhys in Physics and Astrophysics at Cardiff University, before completing and MSc in Medical Physics at the University of Aberdeen.
During my doctoral research I characterised the effects spinal cord injury-induced osteoporosis has on the musculoskeletal system, under the supervision of Dr Sylvie Coupaud. This research has proven critical for my current central research focus, which is the development and characterisation of the effects of wearable devices that deliver nanoscale vibrations to the musculoskeletal system. A promising technology, which in-vitro as been shown to encourage mesenchymal stem cells to differentiate in to osteoblasts (bone building cells), thus may aid in preventing or treating osteoporosis and enhancing fracture healing.
