Shuqiao's main area of expertise is computational biomechanics, medical device prototyping (software and hardware) and statistical shape model. He is working on a translation project to develop a smartphone-based navigation system for the positioning of an orthopaedic implant. He collaborated with orthopaedic surgeons, investors and entrepreneurs. This project has been supported by Wellcome Trust, EPSRC IAA, SET Squared ICURe, MedTech SuperConnector.

Before joining Imperial College London, Shuqiao received his PhD from The University of Edinburgh, UK under the supervision of Prof Pankaj Pankaj, Prof Hamish Simpson and Dr Robert Wallace, where he developed a new constitutive model for viscoelastic properties of trabecular bone and finite element algorithms.
