Summary

Dr Watson joined the School of Engineering and Computer Science in February 2015, having previously worked as a researcher in the University of Hull's Medical and Biological Engineering Research Group, . His research is focused on the development of complex computational models of skeletal components and their application in 'in silico' medicine. This involves integrating the modelling techniques of three-dimensional visualisation, musculoskeletal modelling/multibody dynamics and finite element analysis.
