Dr Ruth Mackay
Senior Lecturer

Howell Building 132


I am a Mechanical Engineer with a particular interest within the biomedical field.  I gained my BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering in 2007, and PhD, in Micro-electromechanical-systems in 2011, both from the University of Dundee.  My research focuses on organ-on-a-chip tecnologies for women's health, low cost point of care diagnostic devices and prosthetics.

I teach within the areas of Finite Element Analysis, Biomechanics and Engineering Design.
