Cohort 3

Nico Pickard

I have had a specific interest in prosthetics from a young age, particularly through its ability to make a meaningful impact on peoples lives whilst utilising my engineering training. I recently completed an undergraduate master’s degree at the University of Birmingham in Mechanical Engineering which included a year in industry at an osseo-integrated prosthetic company, Integrum, in Gothenburg, Sweden. For my PhD project, I will be designing and evaluating a design for a trans-radial socket for use in low and middle income countries. My hobbies include playing hockey, playing guitar, reading, hiking, cycling and being the bassist for a band.
