Edmund Pickering is postdoctoral researcher in both the Biomechanics and Spine Research Group (BSRG) and the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology (BTM) group at the Queensland University of technology.  As part of this, Edmund’s research work focuses on spinal modelling and bone adaptation simulations.  Edmund also conducts research into the mechanical behaviour of 3D printed stents and the mechanical characteristics of nanowires.

Edmund completed his PhD at the Queensland University of Technology, having previously completed a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours) and a Master of Engineering Management.  Edmund’s PhD focusing on the mechanical characterisation of nanowires through resonance techniques, combining both experimental and numerical work.  This work involved extensive image processing, 3D modelling and finite element simulation.  These are all skills that he incorporates into his current work in the BSRG.

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.  If you are interested in connecting with Edmund, for collaborations or teaching purposes, he is best contacted via his email found through the contact link.
