William investigates improved bone regeneration around titanium implants by controlling the mechanical forces acting through them. He uses the latest additive manufacturing technologies with physiological finite element models to optimise the implant design.
He is supervised by Associate Professor Tim Woodfield and Associate Professor Azam Ali.
William has submitted his thesis for examination.
