My academic expertise is skeletal muscle biomechanics with focuses on cerebral palsy, lower limb muscle strength, and computational bioengineering. After receiving my PhD, I worked for a bioengineering start-up company in the United States that uses muscle imaging data to make statistical models of leg strength in various populations. My research background will contribute to the aims of this project, particularly the statistical modelling to improve cerebral palsy diagnosis. Additionally, my first-hand knowledge of the start-up business environment will guide the direction of this project to advance both the research aims and the translation into a viable health care business.
