Shihfan Jack Tu

BSc, MSc, PhD


Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Biomechanist interested in body movements and therapeutic mechanisms.

I am a postdoctoral research assistant, working on human movement analysis with ultrasound imaging, supervised by Dr Stephen Mellon. We are working on the development of a quick and robust method for joint position assessments in 3-D, which can help to improve the efficiency of clinical examinations. While studying for my PhD at Queen Mary, University of London, I developed an ultrasound-based semi-automatic computer tracking method to quantify soft-tissue dynamics to validate in-vivo effects and mechanisms of taping therapy.

Prior to PhD, I was trained in the Sports Medicine discipline at Kaohsiung Medical University, followed by both clinical and research-based MSc in Kent and Taiwan. I am now particularly interested in discovering the effects and mechanisms of musculoskeletal disorders and therapies with computer aid clinical data analysis.

In my spare time, I am a fan of technology and programming. I am also a serious coffee lover who is passionate to develop home barista skills.
