Fiona Sunderland

Host institution: University of Southampton 

Project title: Digital Prosthetics: Machine Learning and human challenges in designing and testing next-generation personalised limbs.

I’m Fiona and I come from Epping Forest. I have been studying at the University of Southampton since 2016, during which I completed a BSc in mathematics, worked as a sabbatical officer in the student union and have just finished an MSc in Biomedical Engineering. For my Masters’ project I worked under the supervision of Alex Dickinson in creating a statistical shape model of the transtibial amputated limb model and for my PhD will be continuing to build upon this. Outside of my studies I am an avid musician, playing flute, alto/tenor/bari saxophone, bass guitar, double bass etc in various University of Southampton bands/orchestras.
