Joshua Steer is a Postgraduate Research Student in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.


Joshua graduated with a degree in BEng Mechanical Engineering from the University in Southampton in 2015.

During the course of this he completed a research project titled Individual Project on Statistical Shape Modelling of Residual Limb Shape for Transtibial Amputees as part of a summer internship and subsequently his final year Individual Project.

Following the completion of his degree he started his PhD research in the Bioengineering Research Group at the same institution working on the development of Prosthetic Devices to improve Load Transfer in Lower Limb Amputees.
