Academic biography

Dr David MacManus graduated with a degree in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from Trinity College Dublin in 2013. Following this, David began his PhD studies at University College Dublin where his research focused on the biomechanics of traumatic brain injury. His PhD thesis was awarded the Broberg Medal for Best PhD Thesis in Mechanics at University College Dublin in 2017. In 2018, David was awarded a Science Foundation Ireland Industry Fellowship to investigate the biological mechanisms underlying insulin-induced injection-site lipohypertrophy. David has since joined the School of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering at Dublin City University as an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering. David’s research focuses on the biomechanics of traumatic brain injury, and in particular, on mechanical characterisation of brain tissue.
