Royal Veterinary College
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Imperial College London
I work in the university and design new techniques and devices to help the patients with hand abnormalities
I develop a three-dimensional computer model for hand to calculate forces produced my each muscle and tendons in hand and forearm. This model helps patients with Arthritis and improves their quality of life. I also use this model to advice clinicians and hand surgeons on rehabilitation methods for each patients.
My Typical Day: A typical day will include collecting data, meeting with students, computer modelling, reading scientific journals, and lots of tea and coffee
On daily basis, I collect a lot of data from patients and analyse them. I summarise my result and present it to clinicians and surgeons. I also using programming tools to develop my hand models. I attend and present at seminars, conferences and group meetings. I also supervise students and help my fellow colleagues on their research.
What I'd do with the money
I would devlope a 3D printed bionic hand.
I would like to use the money to develop a 3D printed bionic arm using my computer modelling. I would also get the school-children involved in making the hand model, printing them and using the computer models to move the hand.
