MME Student Wins Best Student Presentation Award

Tuesday, August 16, 2022

A MASc student in MME, Sophia Ngan, received the ‘Best Student Presentation’ award at the Global Human Body Models Consortium Users Symposium on August 16, 2022. The exciting new work entitled “Smooth particle hydrodynamics to improve post-fracture response prediction of a finite element functional spinal unit model in compression” presents a method to predict the onset and post-fracture response of vertebra, critical to understanding and mitigating spinal cord injury. The research project is part of an NSERC collaborative project with sponsors: Stellantis, General Motors of Canada, Honda Development and Manufacturing of America, and supported by the Digital Research Alliance of Canada. Sophia’s research is part of a larger team initiative in the Impact Mechanics and Material Characterization (IMMC) group led by Prof. Duane Cronin to develop computational human models to investigate impact response and injury mechanisms, improve safety for vulnerable populations, and to generate new approaches to mitigate injury.
