Spencer joined the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies early in 2016 where he is working under the supervision of Dr Jonathan Jeffers and Professor Anthony Bull. His current work aims to develop an implant and the associated instrumentation for above-the-knee amputees, making use of additive manufacturing technology.
Previously he was awarded an MEng (Hons) degree in Mechanical Engineering and PhD from the University of Birmingham for research into the viscoelastic properties of the urinary bladder and surgical instrument design for the removal of bladder tumours.
