Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr. Marisa Sargent completed her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in 2023 within the area of rehabilitation engineering. Her main area of interest is mechanobiology and soft tissue health with a particular focus on prosthetics and lower-limb amputees. As part of a multi-disciplinary research group, she is currently working towards the evaluation of the limb's response to loading by combining physiological, biological, and biomechanical know-how and techniques on various organisational levels, from cells over tissues through to the entire limb.

Besides pursuing her own research, Dr. Sargent is also involved in teaching, tutoring and assessing classes on Prosthetics within the BSc(Hons) Prosthetics & Orthotic and the MSc in Biomedical Engineering course as well as co-supervising student projects in Biomedical Engineering.
