Summary

 

Summary

Kiron Athwal is a Research Associate in the Biomechanics group at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Imperial College London. He joined the research group as a PhD student in October 2012. His PhD research was on assessing soft tissue contribution to the stability of total knee replacements.

Prior to joining the Biomechanics Group, Kiron undertook a three-month placement as a Honorary Research Assistant in the Sport Performance and Biomechanics Laboratory at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He investigated the feasibility of using an ear-mounted accelerometer to monitor the performance of sports-related exercises.

Kiron obtained an MEng in Engineering Science in 2011 at the University of Oxford, with a final year gait-biomechanics project entitled "Does the method of calculating tibial rotation affect the interpretation of leg motion data?"
