Academic history started with the open university gaining a bachelor’s in science and then a Master’s Degree, in 2017 started at Loughborough University attaining a second Masters in advanced engineering and now concluding the path with a PhD Engineering research initially was the application of computing technology to engineering design and manufacturing systems, currently research focusing on the development of prosthetic bone attachment for femoral amputees, My PhD research is focused on developing an innovative prosthetic Knee joint for femoral amputees using advanced materials, simulation techniques and additive manufacturing technological advancements

PhD Thesis Title: Prosthetic Knee for Tibiofemoral Amputees

The different research conducted i.e prosthetic implants for femoral amputees and innovative knee prosthetic are motivated to help individuals who have suffered life-changing injuries with the lose of lower limbs to regain a life of relative normality, alleviating the additional complications associated with a loss of a limb/s
