Co-supervised PhD Students

Emily Yik Kwan Chan, PhD Student (2022 - )
Emily is a PhD student whose current research is focusing on traumatic brain injury (TBI) prediction in head impact caused by rapid mechanical loading in sports, which lies in the intersection of kinematics, neuroscience and engineering. She is investigating the biomechanic mechanism of the head impacts in sports, identifying the risk factor of neurodegeneration, and surrogate modelling of finite element methods by machine learning methods, with the aim of real-time TBI prediction for sporting collisions. Emily is supervised by Dr Mazdak Ghajari at Human Experience, Analysis and Design (HEAD) Lab at Dyson School of Design Engineering, and co-supervised by Dr Qin Chen at Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College. Her PhD study is funded by Sports and Wellbeing Analytics (SWA), a progressive player in the field of wearable technology.
