Dr Phil Riches

Senior Lecturer

Biomedical Engineering

Personal statement

Research interests include orthopaedic device design, robotic/haptic orthopaedic surgery and experimental and computational hard and soft tissue mechanics. In particular, the application of

  • poroelastic (biphasic) modelling,
  • dynamic mechanical analysis,
  • atomic force microscopy, and
  • nanoindentation

of bone, cartilaginous tissue and tissue engineered constructs in fundamental and applied contexts, namely hip and knee arthroplasty and intervertebral disc biomechanics.
