James is a PhD student who joined the London group in 2018 after completing his MEng in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. His research involves producing a computational model of synovial joint development, with a focus on the chick hip joint. He hopes his model will be able to predict joint malformations under abnormal fetal development, such as flaccid paralysis. James’s email address is james.monsen14 *at* imperial.ac.uk.
