Jamie Concannon

Biomedical Device Researcher

Jamie Concannon graduated from The National University of Ireland, Galway in 2015 with a First Class Honours B.E in Biomedical Engineering. His thesis focused on the Computational Modelling Of The Optimum Removal Of External Fixators In Comminuted Tibial Fractures and was awarded the David Bouchier Hayes Innovations in Surgery Award for 2015 for his research at the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland. His thesis was presented internationally at both the 23rd Annual European Orthopaedic Research Society and the 6th Annual International Conference of Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues.

A keen interest in biomechanics and computational analysis has lead to him successfully attaining a position as a PhD candidate in the Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at The National University of Ireland, Galway under the Co-Supervision of Professor Peter E. McHugh and Professor Sherif Sultan of the WVI. His PhD focuses on the Computational And Experimental Analysis Of The Efficacy Of Endovascular Devices In The Treatment Of Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysms.
