Lee-Anne is currently involved in the coursework component of her MSc. The scope of her dissertation is still being decided upon, however it is certain that it will involve the impact testing of bone. More specifically, she is interested in using modified Split Hopkinson Pressure bars to test bone in the intermediate strain rate range.
