Investigation of patient-specific features of shoulder MSK modelling. Study of an MRI-based EMG-driven model

After graduating from a Master of biomedical and biomechanical engineering from the Universite de Technologie de Compiegne (UTC, France), Max is pursuing with a PhD through the ARC ITTC-JB at QUASR/QUT. His expertise lays in the analysis of soft tissues actions implied in shoulder stability and motion. Computational modelling as well as human kinematics and EMG recordings are the key tools he works with. His project focuses on studying the influence of patient-specific modelling features on the shoulder joint computational outcomes.
