Since senior high school, Ishaan has been intrigued by the ways in which we could utilise science and technology to enhance our health and quality of life. This led him to pursue a dual undergraduate degree with a Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering (Honours) and a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) at Sydney University.
Although he had considered pursuing a PhD directly after his undergraduate degree, he wanted to first gain some industry experience to learn how to enhance the clinical applicability of his research output. He is very grateful to have this opportunity through Flinders University and ARC CMIT alongside 360 Med Care, which will allow him to pursue research with real-world implications.
His PhD focuses on advancements in surgical planning for and execution of total knee arthroplasty with a focus on the improvement of patient outcomes. The project investigates preoperative and intraoperative surgical factors and their impact on patient outcome and aims to use this information to develop easy to use and clinically applicable models that can assist clinicians with their surgical decision-making.
