Harry is a PhD student in Human Experience, Analysis and Design Laboratory and the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Laboratory at Imperial College London. Before starting his PhD Harry completed an integrated Masters in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Exeter.

His main research focuses on studying the biomechanics of impact induced vascular injury in the brain. This is done though the use of high fidelity finite element models of the human brain created to simulate real life injury events which have lead to bleeding or vascular injury, parametric studies of the effect of different loading conditions on the brains vasculature network, and investigation of the effectiveness of head protection devices on vasculature damage.
