    Research Interests

    Dr Manda’s research interests are computational biomechanics, nonlinear solid mechanics, biomaterials and additive manufacturing, multiscale modelling of soft/hard tissues, musculoskeletal tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

    Dr Manda has been involved in various projects focussing on computational modelling of soft tissue (articular cartilage) and micro –macro-mechanical modelling of hard tissue (bone), constitutive modelling of time-dependent behaviour and mechanobiology of bone. His research has more recently focused on bioresorbable biomaterials, 3d printing, in vitro tissue regeneration in bone/cartilage scaffolds and developing predictive mechanobiological models.


    Dr Krishna Manda received his master's degree (M.Tech) in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India and PhD in Engineering Mechanics from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. After his PhD, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Edinburgh, UK and then as a senior research associate at University of Portsmouth, UK before joining as a lecturer in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast in 2017.
