Biography

Elyse Passmore is a Research Fellow with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Melbourne. She received a PhD in Engineering from The University of Melbourne investigating the effect of torsional deformities of the femur and tibia on gait and function. Her work combined medical imaging and 3D gait analysis to construct patient-specific musculoskeletal models. Currently, Elyse is investigating the biomechanics of racehorses as part of the Equine Limb Injury Prevention Program. 

Elyse is also a Biomedical Engineering at The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne and involved with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Centre for Clinical Research Excellence in Cerebral Palsy. Her research looks at the application of biomechanics in the clinical setting. Currently her work is focused on the inclusion of medical imaging with 3D gait analysis to inform surgical decision making and understanding the development and impact of lower-limb deformities.
