Edmund Pickering is postdoctoral researcher in both and the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology group within the Centre for Biomedical Technologies at the Queensland University of technology (QUT). Edmund’s work uses advanced modelling techniques to solve challenges in medical engineering. Edmund’s current work investigates the mechanical behaviour of 3D scaffolds, optimisation of metamaterial mechanical behaviour, bone mechanoadaption, and medical robotics.

Edmund completed his PhD at the Queensland University of Technology (2018), having previously completed a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours) (2013) and a Master of Engineering Management (2014). Edmund’s PhD focused on the mechanical characterisation of nanowires through resonance techniques, combining both experimental and numerical work. Edmund has completed postdoctoral research with QUT’s Biomechanics and Spine Research Group, Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Group, and Centre for Biomedical Technologies. Edmund is currently completing an industry focused REDI fellowship, with Stryker Corporation, where he is working on the next generation of medical robots.

Edmund is also a passionate educator and has teaching experience in a wide range of mechanical engineering subjects. Most recently Edmund’s teaching has focused on Stress Analysis, Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Automatic Control. Edmund also peruses research in engineering education.
