Dr Angela Kedgley earned her PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Western Ontario in 2009. She then worked as a Post Doctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia before joining Imperial College in 2011, where she currently works as a Lecturer in Biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering.

Dr Kedgley is a leading early career researcher in

biomechanics of the human upper limb.

Dr Angela Kedgley is a Lecturer in Biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London. She researches human biomechanics; her most recent work explores the mechanics of the hand and wrist in an effort to build new understanding of how we can more effectively diagnose and treat osteoarthritis.

In 2009, Dr Kedgley obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Western Ontario in Canada, during which she developed a fluoroscopic radiostereometric analysis (RSA) system, which was used to measure human joint kinematics. While at the University of Western Ontario she worked as a lecturer, teaching orthopaedic biomechanics for three years. She then obtained a postdoctoral fellowship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, which provided her with the opportunity to work at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility at the University of British Columbia.

In 2011 she moved to the United Kingdom and took up a position as a Research Associate in the Department of Bioengineering with the Osteoarthritis Centre of Excellence (now the Musculoskeletal Medical Engineering Centre) at Imperial College London. That project focused on building subject-specific finite element models of the knee for use in osteoarthritis research, something that is an ongoing theme of the Centre’s research.

In 2012 she became a Research Fellow and was awarded an Imperial College Research Fellowship in 2013.

In 2015 she joined the department as a Lecturer in Biomechanics.

Angela is a Chartered Engineer and a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine. She is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
