Dr. Zeike Taylor

Dr Zeike Taylor graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Western Australia in 2002 and obtained his PhD in Biomechanical Engineering from the same institution in 2006. His thesis research concerned development of image-based microstructural constitutive models of articular cartilage. He has held postdoctoral fellowships at the CSIRO in Australia (2006), University College London (2007-2009) and the University of Queensland (2009-2011), and was appointed as an honorary lecturer at UCL in 2009. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield as a lecturer in 2011.
 
Dr Taylor's major research theme is computational biomechanics for medicine, in particular with application to problems in medical image computing and surgical simulation. His work therefore stands at the interface between biomechanical modelling and medical imaging: development of modelling technologies that can aid tasks such as image registration and image-based surgical guidance, on the one hand, and methods of extracting patient-specific data from images to personalize models on the other.
 
Particular areas of development include:
Biomechanically-constrained medical image registration;
Computational biomechanics for image-guided therapies;
Nonlinear finite element analysis for modeling soft tissue deformation;
High-performance computing on graphics hardware (GPUs);
Interactive surgical simulation; and
Constitutive modeling of soft tissues.
