I am a postdoctoral researcher within the School of Materials, based within the HMXIF. My current work is to investigate biological materials and learn how their structures provide superior mechanical properties. I am particularly interested in hierarchical materials in nature, and their multi-scale imaging and modelling. My other research interests include finite element modelling of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the soft tissues, for use in developing improved repair techniques. I obtained a PhD in Biomaterials from the University of Manchester in 2017 and presented my thesis “Local Mechanical Stresses in Sutured Tendon Repairs; A Novel Approach to the Design of New Attachment Methods”. Some of this work is published here DOI: 10.1007/s10237-014-0593-5
