Dr Martina Barzan
Dr Martina Barzan is a postdoctoral research fellow with experience in paediatric orthopaedic biomechanics. She is currently working at the Griffith Centre of Biomedical and Rehabilitation Engineering (Griffith University), developing personalised digital twins of children with hip deformities. In collaboration with several orthopaedic surgeons at the Queensland Children's Hospital and medical device companies, Dr Barzan uses the digital twins to inform virtual surgery planning and design personalised surgical guides. In 2019 she completed a PhD on the development of personalised knee kinematic models of children with recurrent patellar dislocation at Griffith University. Previous to this, she graduated in Bioengineering at the University of Padova (Italy). Dr Barzan is thrilled to be part of the ARC CMIT project and looks forward to playing a role in helping children through personalised implants and innovative surgical solutions.
