Personal Statement

Ashkan Eliasy graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2015 with a MEng (Hons) in Structural Engineering. Previously, he was honoured to be awarded a computer science Diploma in 2007, first and second prize in two different types of truss bridge designing in a competition open to students from around the world in 2010 at Okanagan College, Canada. During two three-month summer placements in 2013 and 2014, he worked in the Centre for Materials and Structures at the University of Liverpool, researching the implementation of x-ray scattering data of ocular microstructure in numerical simulation of ocular biomechanical behaviour. Ashkan officially joined Biomechanical Engineering Group (BioEG) in June 2015 as a senior research associate supporting one of the largest biomedical / biomedical engineering research groups at the University of Liverpool. He is also the laboratory manager and conducting state-of-the-art research in material characterisation and numerical simulations as well as the development of medical devices to enable better diagnosis, management and treatment of diseases.

Eliasy is the chair at School of Engineering Research Associate Society (SERAS), steering committee member at Research Staff Association (RSA) at University of Liverpool part of UKRSA, a full member of Institution of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), Institution of Mathematics (IMA) and The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). He is working closely with IET as the vice-chairman of young professional society and is helping them to establish a new branch of biomedical engineering. Eliasy is also an Associate Fellow of Higher Education Academy (AFHEA). Moreover, he is a member of European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) which is the largest biomechanics society in Europe
