Postdoctoral Research Fellow

BTech, MSc, PhD.

Sinduja Suresh is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Biomechanics and Spine Research Group (BSRG) and in the ARC ITTC for Multiscale 3D Imaging, Modelling and Manufacturing (M3D) at the Queensland University of Technology. She has a background in Biomedical Engineering and completed her PhD in 2019 at the Hannover Medical School in Germany. Her PhD thesis was focused on the fabrication of mesoscopically-structured hybrid electrospun scaffolds for soft tissue engineering applications.

After her PhD was awarded, Sinduja developed a strong interest in personalised medicine and trained in patient-specific 3D printed therapies for bone injury and deformity at the ARC ITTC M3D. Her strengths lie in MicroCT imaging, semi-automated image segmentation, 3D design of implantable scaffolds and 3D printing.

Her current research with the QUT Biomechanics and Spine Research Group (BSRG) focuses on tracking cosmesis using 3D surface scanning in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients with a special interest in patient welfare and quality of life. She is also involved in the design of custom mattresses for complex spine deformity surgeries requiring bespoke patient positioning, in collaboration with BSRG’s industry partner Sealy of Australia. In addition, she provides research support to PhD students in the BSRG team and the ARC ITTC M3D.
