Chineye Udeze



Chineye Princess Udeze has MEng in Medical Engineering during which she undertook a two months summer placement in Tissue Engineering for Tendon Mechanics, at QML. She has recently finished her PhD under the supervision of Professor Hazel Screen where she investigated the interdependence of perturbation frequency and magnitude on tenocyte metabolism and repair. Her research interests include tissue response to mechanical loading particularly in tendon, and mechanotransduction. As an undergraduate, she conducted research in tissue mechanics that tested two major hypotheses of tendon mechanics at the fascicular level. These included Tendon Micromechanics: Lateral Force Transmission between Fascicles (2011), and Tendon Mechanics Varies with Age (2012). In her spare time she enjoys swimming, travelling and going out with family and friends.
