I’m Naomi, a chartered mechanical engineer with 10 years’ experience in industry and academia. After graduation in 2004 I worked at Arup, an engineering consultancy. Six years later I returned to university to become a biomedical engineer. I am a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in the Biomedical Research Group in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham. I am a liaison between clinicians, researchers and industry to help develop innovative medical technologies. During my PhD I researched the design and manufacture of spinal implants called Total Disc Replacements. They are designed to replace damaged intervertebral discs in the spine.
