Dr Xijin Hua
Dr Xijin Hua is an EU-funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) Individual Fellow, working on the computational design, optimization and simulation of 3D printed ankle-foot orthosis (AFO). He obtained his PhD degree from the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) at University of Leeds, where he worked on the stratified design, development and biomechanical analysis of orthopaedic hip implants. He was then working as a research fellow in iMBE, focusing on the biomechanical analysis of articular cartilage in natural hip joint through imaging technique, finite element analysis and parameterised modelling. Before joining the Department, he was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow in the Institute for Biomechanics, ETH Zurich, working on the multiscale computational biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, soft tissue and hip joint through coupling a multibody dynamics model of the human body, a finite element model of hip joint and articular cartilage, and a finite element model of the fluid flow within hip joint. His awards include a Fully-funded International Research Scholarship, European Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, Imaged-based Biomedical Modelling Fellowship.
