Research Area

Bone remodelling, Skull development

Research Outline

Craniosynotosis is the premature fusion of one or more sutures found in the skull, which affects 1 in every 2000 children born. Through the use of computer programming and modelling, I aim to investigate the condition further, with the use of biomechanics and biomedical engineering.

About Connor Cross

In 2014, I completed my Electronic and Electrical Engineering BTEC course at West Suffolk College. At this time, I discovered the world of biomedical engineering and its amazing implementation in the medical field. I began my MEng Biomedical Engineering Course at Middlesex University in 2014, graduating in 2018. During that time, I developed a passion in the area of osteo-integrated implants and prosthetic devices, eventually developing a fully functioning prosthetic arm and conducting my own personal research into expandable endoprosthetics. After this, I discovered my current research opportunity with Dr. Mehran Moazen in the field of Craniosynotosis.
