Xin Zhang

Biomechanical Engineer

Xin Zhang received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Melbourne in 2021 and a BEng in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Western Australia in 2014. During his doctoral research, he developed a dynamic wrist simulator and used bi-plane fluoroscopy to study the change in carpal kinematics after incrementally disrupting different scapholunate-supporting ligaments and subsequent reconstructive surgeries. As a research assistant at the HWBL, he was involved in the 4D-CT analysis of CMC motion and experimental investigations on optimal screw placement for treating scaphoid fractures. His research interests include in-vitro joint simulation, musculoskeletal modelling, image processing, and computer vision techniques applied to medical imaging.
