Umar Hossain is a PhD student in the Biomechanics Research Group, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. Umar joined the group in October 2016, supervised by Dr. Jonathan Jeffers and Dr. Ulrich Hansen.
Umar's research interests are in the use of additively manufactured or 3D printed metal in bone implants and orthopaedic devices.
Before starting his PhD, Umar obtained an MEng in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London in 2016. His master's thesis investigated the fatigue properties of additively manufactured titanium and titanium alloy lattice structures.
