Hassan Ahmadzadeh joined the Musculoskeletal Medical Engineering Centre (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/msk ) and the Musculoskeletal Mechanics group at the Department of Bioengineering (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/musculoskeletal-mechanics/ ) in 2012 as a PhD candidate. His PhD focuses on Validation of multiple muscle force predictions in musculoskeletal models of the human body.
His research interests include the application of new technologies and computational models in clinical solutions for musculoskeletal disorders. His current work mainly focuses on quantification of internal loading of the human musculoskeletal system and clinical validation of the musculoskeletal models using ultrasound-based techniques, musculoskeletal dynamics modelling, experimental testing and tissues mechanics.
He has been involved in various postgraduate representation activities across the college; He was selected as the PhD representative of the Department of Bioengineering in 2012, elected as the postgraduate students’ representative of the Faculty of Engineering in 2013 and as the Deputy President of the Graduate Students’ Union in 2014.
He obtained his MEng degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2012 from the University of Birmingham. During his research at the University of Birmingham he has worked on modelling of mechanical properties of human soft tissues and he has developed a new technique to fabricate tissue-mimicking materials using silicone rubbers.
