Profile

Dr Elise Pegg's fascination with biomaterials and the implant-tissue interface began during her studies at the University of Nottingham. Her PhD thesis examined the peptide functionalisation of titanium to improve implant integration and was sponsored by Smith & Nephew.

After graduating, Elise worked for three years as a Research Engineer at Biomet, an orthopaedic manufacturer.  She returned to academia in 2010 as a postdoctoral researcher in orthopaedic biomechanics at the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.

Elise was appointed Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in 2015.
