Dr Pinaki Bhattacharya is a Lecturer in Solid Biomechanics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and in the Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine at the University of Sheffield.
Pinaki Bhattacharya obtained his doctoral degree, specialising in biomechanics (2012) from Purdue University (West Lafayette, USA). From 2012 to 2018, he further developed experimental and computational approaches in biomechanical applications during post-doctoral positions held at KU Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) and at the University of Sheffield.
Previously, he obtained his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from India, in naval architecture (2001) and in engineering mechanics (2008) respectively, from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur) and the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (Bangalore). From 2001 to 2005, he worked in the CAE software industry (Pune) and as a research assistant in turbulent heat transfer (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore).
His current research interest is aimed at predicting the efficacy of medical interventions in altering disease outcomes, especially in musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoporosis. To this end, he is developing mechanistic theories of disease progression, with a focus on capturing the complexity across scales of time and space.
Pinaki Bhattacharya is also teaching modules on Medical Device Regulation and Anatomy and Physiology within MEng (Mechanical Engineering with Biomechanics, Biomaterials and Bioengineering) and MSc (Computational Medicine) programmes.
