Senior Medical Scientist
Adelaide Medical School
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.
My research uses new musculoskeletal imaging techniques to assess the outcomes of patients who have undergone lower limb surgery at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. I have been the Senior Medical Scientist in the Orthopaedic and Trauma Department since 2009 and currently the Early-Mid Career Research Fellow (2022-2025) funded from The Hospital Research Foundation Group. My research has focused on improving the outcomes of patients undergoing hip replacement surgery. I am an international leader in the use of Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA), a 3D radiographic measurement technique, to accurately monitor implant movement, spinal fusion, tendon lengthening and fracture fixation.
I have developed a broad knowledge and skill set within all aspects of clinical research and have become a passionate advocate for translating research findings into improved clinical outcomes that benefit both the health care system and individual patients. Working alongside clinicians, nurses, allied health, scientists and students, I have been actively involved in all facets of multi-disciplinary projects within the Quality Assurance and Research Program.
We have a number of research projects available for students and clinicians to participate in, please contact me for further details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
