Sporting collisions, falls, interactions with machines (e.g. robots), road traffic accidents, conflicts, etc.; these are conditions that expose the human to forces that can cause temporary or permanent damage.

Here we study the interaction between human and environment in extreme conditions using high fidelity computational models and human surrogates. Using this knowledge, we take a Design Engineering approach to improve this interaction to better protect the human against short-term and long-term effects.

We collaborate with colleagues across a range of disciplines, including medicine, biomechanics and robotics, to ensure our work is fully informed by basic science and we work with industries and standardization bodies to ensure our work is fully translational and effective.
