NDORMS Research Fellow
Stephen has a degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Ulster. He did his PhD at Queen Mary, University of London in the Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Biomedical Materials. After his PhD, Stephen received some funding to join the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory at Lund University, Sweden, as a post-doctoral researcher.
Stephen is currently a NDORMS Research Fellow with the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre (OOEC). He works with Prof. David Murray and Prof. Hemant Pandit employing motion analysis, musculoskeletal modelling, 3D imaging, segmentation and finite element analysis (FEA) to carry out research on hip and knee joint mechanics. In particular, Stephen is interested in individual motion patterns, implant positioning, and implant design and their effects on implant survival.
Stephen has collaborated with Queens University Belfast and Aalborg University, Denmark. In addition to his research interests, Stephen maintains the OOEC joint replacement database, supervises DPhil and Masters Students. Stephen is currently a Stipendiary Lecturer in Engineering Science at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford.
