SEMS Seminar Series: Dr Mazdak Ghajari, Imperial
Date: Wednesday 30 November 2022 15:00 - 16:00
Location: Skeel Lecture Theatre, People's Palace
Biomechanics of Traumatic Brain Injury:
Dr Ghajari's research is in understanding the effects of mechanical forces on human body and designing systems that can enhance this interaction. He leads a group of researchers at the HEAD lab. His current focus is biomechanics of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and designing advanced protective devices. For this research, Dr Ghajari uses advanced computational techniques, designs tools and collaborates with neurologists and neurosurgeons at Imperial Neurotrauma Centre. This work will improve head protection systems and treatment, leading to a reduction in death and disability after TBI.
