I’m a second year student who is eager to learn about new developments in our field. I felt BAPO was the best place for me to expand my knowledge and understanding through all their work. I also felt the editorial committee was an essential part of BAPO due to their great work with the magazine which is how I first knew about them.

I qualified as a Prosthetist/Orthotist BSc (hons) at the University of Salford in 2017 and in 2019 I completed a Masters by Research in Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering and Human Movement Science. The focus of my research is upper limb prosthetics, adolescents and sport.

I am a third year Prosthetics and Orthotics student at the University of Strathclyde. The student observer role on the editorial committee has given me an insight into different areas of P&O and the many possible career pathways. I also have a passion for sport, which I would love to combine with P&O, while exploring opportunities all over the world.
