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 is currently pursuing her PhD degree through the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her project focuses on developing a semi-automated method for generating subject-specific finite element models of the hip from DXA scans, to better predict fracture risk.
Noah Steinmann completed his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from McMaster University in 2018. During his undergrad, he worked both as a research assistant and as a product designer (Co-op) at Christie Digital Inc. He is currently working towards his MASc in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, with his work focusing on developing instrumentation for an Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) upper limb for quantifying injury risk from behind shield blunt trauma.
Julia de Lange received her undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph, where she studied Biomedical Engineering. She completed the program with a concentration in Biomechanics. She is now pursuing her MASc through the School of Biomedical Engineering, using an instrumented boot that has been developed in our lab to evaluate the impact response of cadaveric specimens in comparison to Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs) under altered ankle postures.
Lindsey Wong is an undergraduate student in the Integrated Science program. She is conducting her final year thesis project in our lab, examining how ankle posture affects fracture risk and location in the lower leg.
