Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Elise Pegg was appointed a lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath in November 2015. Elise's research is in the fields of Biomaterials and Biomechanics, with a focus on orthopaedic applications. After completing her doctorate at the Univerisity of Nottingham, Elise went to work as a research engineer for an orthopaedic manufacturer for three years. She decided to return to academia in 2011 and moved to the University of Oxford to become a post-doctoral researcher for Prof David Murray (a consultant orthopaedic surgeon). Now at the University of Bath, based in the Centre for Orthopaedic Biomechanics, Elise is conducting innovative research into new treatments for polyethylene implants, to enable direct imaging both during and after surgery and provide novel informative measures of clinical outcome.
