About Dr Moazen

Mehran Moazen graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Mazandaran, Iran, in 2005 and completed his PhD in Medical Engineering at the University of Hull, UK, in 2008. He then worked as a consultant engineer and post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Hull for Smith & Nephew and Hull York Medical School for about a year. In June 2009, he moved to the University of Leeds, UK, as a post-doctoral research fellow investigating the biomechanics of periprosthetic femoral fracture fixation. In June 2012, he received a prestigious five-year research fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering to investigate the biomechanics of craniosynostosis. He joined Department of Mechanical Engineering at UCL in July 2015.

His research interests are focused on the biomechanics of bone, to understand the underlying mechanisms of bone growth, adaptation and repair. This involves the use of experimental measurements and computer modelling techniques (e.g. image processing, finite element analysis, multibody dynamic analysis) to create complex musculoskeletal models to predict the forces experienced by the skeletal and the resultant stresses and strains produced in the bone and related medical devices.
