Kelly Wade

During my PhD research at the University of Auckland, I investigated the microstructural and micromechanical properties of the intervertebral disc nucleus. I was a research fellow at the University of Auckland from 2013-16 and currently work at the Institute of Orthopaedic Research and Biomechanics in Ulm, investigating the biomechanics of disc failure at the microstructural level.
