Caroline Webster is pursuing a PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering. She received her B.S in Biomedical Engineering from North Carolina State in 2012. Her research interests include patient specific prosthetic and implant design, transdermal osseointegrated prosthetic design and development, development of models for surgical rehearsal and surgical training, and the role additive manufacturing can play in enhancing patient specific medicine.
Her dissertation topic is related to the development of a novel hemi-arthroplasty limb-sparing implant utilizing additive manufacturing.
Caroline also has two papers she has published, with numerous collaborators:
