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 aiming to provide a quick and robust method for joint position assessments which can help to improve the efficiency of clinical examinations. While pursuing my PhD at Queen Mary, University of London. I developed a semi-auto ultrasound-based method to quantify soft-tissue dynamics to valid in-vivo effects and mechanisms of taping therapy.
I was first 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 like coding and programming. I am also a serious coffee lover who is passionate to develop home barista skills.
