Cohort 3

Laurence Russell

My project is to optimise the design and device-skin interface of cervical collars used in emergency and rehabilitation settings. I will be using various bioengineering approaches to investigate the conditions that put patients at most risk of getting secondary injuries from cervical collars.

I complete my MEng in Mechanical Engineering with Biomechanics at the University of Sheffield in 2020. I focussed on the use of computational modelling in bioengineering applications.

My interests mostly revolve around sport; I am currently training for the Brighton marathon 2022 and I am playing for the university of Salford volleyball and ultimate frisbee teams. I also enjoy music and play the alto sax, clarinet, and viola de gamba.
