Dr Stephen Mellon
College Lecturer in Engineering Science
Stephen Mellon is a NDORMS Research Fellow with the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre (OOEC) at the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences. His research interests lie in Orthopaedic Biomechanics with specific emphasis on joint mechanics after joint replacement. He has recently focused on new methods for measuring human motion using ultrasound.
Stephen studied Biomedical Engineering at the University of Ulster followed by a PhD at Queen Mary, University of London. After a stint at the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory at Lund University, Sweden as a post-doctoral researcher, he joined the University of Oxford.
At St Edmund Hall, he tutors 1st and 2nd year Engineering Science students on Dynamics and Materials. Stephen also teaches Biomechanics on the MSc in Musculoskeletal Sciences run by his department and is a tutor on the Preparing for Learning and Teaching at Oxford course run by the Medical Sciences Division.
