BSc, MSc, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Biomechanist interested in body movements and therapeutic mechanisms.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre. I work with Assoc Prof Stephen Mellon on a fusion development of ultrasound imaging and motion capturing techniques for human movement analysis. This project is supported by Versus Arthritis, and we aim to develop a novel method to offer quick and robust joint position assessments in 3-D, which can help 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 taping therapy mechanisms. Before my PhD, I was trained in the Sports Medicine discipline at Kaohsiung Medical University, followed by clinical and research-based master studies 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.
