Biography

Associate Professor Devakar Epari is biomedical engineer who specializes in the area of Orthopaedic Trauma and is the Subject Area Coordinator for Medical Engineering, one of the majors in QUT’s undergraduate Bachelor of Engineering (Hons).

His research interests include the biomechanics and mechano-biology of bone healing and the mechanics of fracture fixation. He is the co-inventor and developer of the Biphasic Plating concept that recently achieved market access approval in the European Union (CE Mark).

His interests in medical device development and led to involvement with several medical device innovation programs including the School of Internation Biodesign (India) and Biodesign Australia.
