HEAD OF SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
Leads the Biomechanical Engineering Research Group with interest in ocular material characterisation and numerical simulation of ocular biomechanical performance. Professor Elsheikh is a Chartered Engineer, a corporate Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He has published 2 books, over 70 journal papers and 30 conference papers. Prof. Elsheikh has long practical experience as a structural engineer, and his recent work includes the development of a number of medical devices to help improve the management of eye diseases.more info
Head of Department of Musculoskeletal Biology
Graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, UCD, Ireland in 1995. From 1995 to 2006, Eithne worked at the University of Bristol, being awarded her PhD on the pathogenesis of cranial cruciate ligament disease in 2003. Eithne has worked at the University of Liverpool since October 2006 and her main clinical interests include management of the trauma patient and cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD). As a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Clinical Veterinary Science Eithne undertakes a significant role in the management of both UG and PG students with regard to clinical, research and teaching duties.more info
Civil Engineering Programme Director
Graduated from The University of Sheffield in 1977 with a BEng (Hons)
in Civil and Structural Engineering, and then a PhD (1980). He worked in industry for leading civil engineering consultants
for over 28 years and was Project Manager on a number of major infrastructure schemes. Steve is a Chartered Engineer, a corporate Member of both the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. He joined the University of Liverpool in October 2008 as a Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering.more info
LECTURER in Biomedical Engineering
Graduated from UMIST in 2003 with a First Class MEng (Hons) in Biomedical Materials Science with Industrial Experience.
In 2007, he completed a PhD at The University of Manchester in ‘The micromechanical behaviour of bone’. Following this, he undertook a post-doctoral position investigating the micromechanical properties of soft tissue. In July 2008, Riaz was awarded a British Heart Foundation Advanced Training fellowship.
He joined the University of Liverpool in October 2011 as a lecturer in Biomedical Engineering.more info
Is an alumnus of the University of Dundee where he obtained a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering in 2007. He then completed an MSc in Structural Engineering in 2008, graduating with distinction. He then undertook an EPSRC funded PhD which investigated the mechanical response of ocular tissues, primarily human sclera, using uniaxial and inflation test methods. Brendan joined the Biomechanical Engineering Group at University of Liverpool as a PDRA in April 2012.more info
Joined the group in 2013, investigating the Biomechanical behaviour of ex-vivo intact ocular globes. He earned both his BEng and MSc in Mechanical Engineering from AAST - Alexandria, Egypt - First Class Honours. Sherif has over 12 years of teaching and academic experience in the field of biologically inspired robotics, mechatronics, unmanned systems and engineering education. In 2007, his involvement and teaching was extended to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech – USA). Currently, he is supervising multiple Mechanical Engineering capstone projects and teaching design modules.more info
