I joined Aston University in September 2016 as a Teaching Associate in Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Life & Health Sciences.

I have a complete Biomedical Engineering background.  I received the BEng degree in Medical Engineering from Queen Mary College, University of London, in 2010 and the MSc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College London, in 2011, and PhD. degree in Medical Robotics from Imperial College London, in 2015.

Prior to joining Aston, I spend a year long spell at Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) as a research fellow in medical robotics working on developing a novel Minimally Invasive Robot- Assisted Fracture Surgery (RAFS)

My research is focused on development of Medical Robotics for Minimal Invasive Surgeries. This includes the design and development of Robotically Assisted Flexible Intervention Devices. My other research area is 3D Computational Modelling and FEA studies of human tissues to aid complex surgical procedures.
