I am a doctoral research student within the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies at Imperial College London. I am currently working on structural finite element modelling of soft and hard tissues of the pelvic region under the supervision of Dr Andrew Phillips.
PhD project title: Mitigation of Hard and Soft Tissue Pelvic Injuries
I graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) from MEng Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College. During my undergraduate studies I have done two Undergraduate Research Opportunity Placements in the Centre for Blast Injury Studies, one of which played an important part in my final year individual project.
