Fatemeh Jazinizadeh received two bachelor of science degrees in biomedical engineering and industrial engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) in 2011 & 2014, and her Master's degree in biomedical engineering in 2014. She completed her PhD degree through the Department of Mechanical Engineering in our lab in 2020 on developing novel image processing tools for DXA scans, to better predict fracture risk. As a PDF she will be working on applying her algorithms to clinical datasets to identify factors that contribute to or reduce injury risk.

Julia de Lange completed her undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph, where she studied Biomedical Engineering with a focus on biomechanics. She completed her MASc in Biomedical Engineering in the Injury Biomechanics lab in 2019, evaluating the impact response of cadaveric feet in comparison to Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs) under altered ankle postures. She is now pursuing her PhD through the School of Biomedical Engineering. Her project focusses on evaluating fracture risk for the upper limb and developing injury corridors for behind armour blunt trauma.

Ali Ammar completed his Bachelor's in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at McMaster University, during which time he completed a research project on tibia fracture repair techniques. He is presently a PhD student in the School of Biomedical Engineering, focussed on advanced image processing techniques applied to large longitudinal databases to improve prediction of osteoporotic fracture risk, and identification of factors that contribute to this. 

Ariana Fraschetti completed her undergraduate degree in the Integrated Science program at McMaster University in 2019, where she specialized in biophysics. She is currently working towards an Interdisciplinary MASc through the School of Biomedical Engineering. Her research focuses on exploring the effects of environmental contaminants on the biomechanical properties of bones in aquatic mustelids.

Liam Burrows completed his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at McMaster University, during which time he developed an interest in biomechanics. He is presently working towards a MASc in the School of Biomedical Engineering at McMaster. His current research involves the development of bio-fidelity corridors for the 5th and 95th percentile upper limb while subjected to behind armour blunt trauma.
