Katherine Wang began her PhD in 2017, passing her viva in 2022, at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University College London under the supervision of Prof. Mehran Moazen. Her project was funded by EPSRC and DePuy Synthes (Johnson & Johnson), and was a joint collaboration with DePuy Synthes, UCL, and the Aristotle University School of Medicine. She used both computational models and experimental methods to investigate the biomechanics of hip implantation method and fracture fixation. During her PhD she developed a medical implant for periprosthetic fractures after total hip arthroplasty. 

Her current project focuses on developing medical devices to alleviate symptoms of Lymphedema after cancer surgery.

Katherine was awarded her MSc degree (Distinction) in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering from UCL in 2016, and completed her BSc degree (Hons - 2.1) in Biomedical Sciences at Brunel University in 2014.

Research Summary
Katherine's research focuses on using soft robotics to develop wearables for patients affected by lymphoedema. Her project - LymphMotion, was named one of the winners of the ESRC funded Zinc Healthy Aging Catalyst Award. This is part of the wider global healthy aging challenge.
