Biography

Jaya joined as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate working at The Whiteley Clinic in collaboration with the School of Veterinary Medicine, the Centre for Biomedical Engineering and the Surrey Business School at the University of Surrey. She is a Biomedical Design engineer who specialises in research and development of medical device products.

Prior to this position she worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The University of Manchester in the Bioengineering Research Group working on research in musculoskeletal projects. Prior to that she worked as a Research Assistant at the Experimental Techniques Centre (ETC) at Brunel University, London conducting research in the biomedical engineering arena on inhibiting biofilm formation on medical implants. She completed her PhD in Bone Mechanics Brunel University, London. During her PhD, she collaborated with researchers at the Centre for Biomedical Engineering at University College London, Smith & Nephew York Research Centre in the UK and Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics from USA. She has a Masters in Biomedical Engineering from Brunel University and a Bachelor degree in Engineering Design from Sheffield Hallam University. She has previously worked for DePuy International Ltd and Symmetry Medical Ltd within materials testing and manufacturing innovation department. She also has experience teaching on biomaterials module for postgraduate students and cardiovascular mechanics and biomimetic materials for undergraduate students. She has presented at numerous conferences, has published abstracts and is named on two patent applications.

Research interests

Her interest lies mainly in research and development of medical devices and biomaterials from research to application into the healthcare industry.
