Dr Gavin Day


I am a Research Fellow in the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. I previously completed my PhD in the same institute, with a thesis entitled “The Effects of Vertebral Variation on the Mechanical Outcomes of Vertebroplasty”. Prior to this I obtained a masters degree in Physics from the University of Sheffield.

Research interests

My current research focuses on the development of experimental and computational techniques to create specimen-specific finite element models of the natural knee joint. Such models provide a means to test multiple loading scenarios in order to better understand the mechanical environment of the knee and to understand the factors affecting the short term stability of arthritis treatments such as osteochondral grafts.
