Thomas Hall is a research postgraduate in the Biomechanics Research Group, part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. He joined the group in October 2018 and is working towards his PhD under the supervision of Dr Richard van Arkel.

Thomas' research interests lie in Computer-Aided Orthopaedic Surgery. He is currently developing smart sensing and imaging techniques to improve diagnosis and treatment in orthopaedics. 

Prior to joining the group, Thomas gained his Master's (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London. During this degree, he completed two major projects in surgical robotics, focused on developing novel haptic control and computer vision concepts.
