About

Mark studied Biomedical Materials Science at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2007 with a BSc (Hons). He then graduated, with merit, from the University of Manchester’s inaugural Biomechanics masters course in September 2008. Following this, Mark returned to the School of Materials to enrol in a department funded PhD at the Materials Science Centre. Currently in his final year, he uses the Nikon Metrology equipment within the Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility to study Natural Composites. The focus of Mark’s doctorate is to characterise the mechanical behaviour of immature bone. His research is interdisciplinary, encompassing Biomechanics, X-ray microtomography, image based meshing, physics based computer modelling, materials characterisation, supercomputers, and Life Sciences.
