Alireza Yahyaiee Bavil has completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering – Biomechanics in Amir Kabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. He has been focused on biomechanical design and analysis since the beginning of his bachelor’s course and have focused on spine biomechanics. For the bachelor’s project, he has designed a new instrument for more accurate bending of spinal fusion rods which resulted in one national patient. For the master’s project he designed a workflow for biomechanical assessment of scoliosis night-time braces which resulted in one journal paper. After his master’s graduation, he aimed to extend his knowledge and experience in biomedical engineering and specifically, orthopaedic implant design and surgery optimization. His background and interests lead him to commence a Ph.D. position that focuses on orthopaedic surgery optimization.

Alireza is a member of Griffith Centre of Biomedical and Rehabilitation Engineering (GCORE) and his Ph.D. project focuses on Proximal Femur Osteotomies (PFO). He tries to optimize surgical and implant parameters to obtain optimal results from the surgery, based on patient specific musculoskeletal and finite element models. His project aims to create a workflow, using which one can find the optimal surgery and implant parameters for each patient, specifically.
