Postdoctoral Research Fellow, School of Mechanical, Medical & Process Engineering

PhD (Queensland University of Technology), Master of Engineering

Dr Maxence Lavaill is a postdoctoral fellow at the ARC Training Centre for Joint Biomechanics at QUT. He specialises in the area of shoulder biomechanics in which he received his PhD at QUT earlier this year. Before that, he obtained a double master's degree in biomedical and biomechanical engineering from the University of Technology of Compiegne in France. His research mainly focuses on computational musculoskeletal modelling of the shoulder joint using experimental methods such as medical images, motion and electromyography to build and drive models. Dr Lavaill’s models are developed to investigate complex surgical scenarios such as the Latarjet surgery to inform and improve clinical practice.
