Trosolwg

Peter Theobald is a Biomechanical Engineer.  He graduated in Medical Engineering from the University of Bradford (1st Class (Hons); 2003), at the time being one of very few higher education institutions to offer such a programme. He moved to Cardiff School of Engineering to read his PhD in soft tissue biomechanics (2006), before progressing to become a member of academic staff. He now teaches on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules.

Dr Theobald`s research focusses on identifying solutions to measure the risk of, and improve prevention against, mortality, morbidity and injury.  He specialises in achieving this through the novel and innovative adoption of additive manufacturing technologies to biomechanics. His research is of both a fundamental and applied nature, meaning he works with a range of academic, clinical and industrial collaborators within the UK and overseas. Internally, Dr Theobald holds memberships in both the High Value Manufacturing, and Bioengineering, research groups.

Addysgu

Dr Theobald has been Head of the Mechanical, Medical and Manufacturing (MMM) discipline since 2013. This role means he is ultimately responsible for all the MMM undergraduate and postgraduate (taught) degree programmes delivered within the School, and for ensuring a high-quality student experience.  The discipline was recently ranked 7th in the UK, by the highly respected Guardian newspaper league tables.

Additionally, he teaches on the following modules:

EN2454 - Anatomy and Physiology II

EN4107 - Biomechanics and Bioengineering

EN4119 - Ergonomics

ENT543 - Research Methods

Research theme: Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing
