Dr Jinke Chang has extensive expertise in both medical and mechanical sciences. He holds a PhD in Medical Science Engineering obtained in 2021 at University College London. He has a Master's and a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. In 2024, Dr Jinke Chang moved to the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.
Dr Jinke Chang's research interests centre around functional materials, biomaterials, advanced manufacturing, and their applications. His research extensively utilizes advanced manufacturing technologies, such as 3D printing, photolithography, and electrospinning, to design and construct functional materials into implants, scaffolds, sensors, and soft robotics. He collaborates closely with surgeons, engineers, materials scientists, and industrial experts to develop a range of advanced solutions for medical interventions, including dental implants, cochlear devices, tracheal devices, and bone implants.
His recent research focuses on biomimetic remineralization of human tooth enamel and understanding the fine-scale phenomena using state-of-the-art nanotechnologies such as AFM, TEM and Synchrotron tomography.
