Dr Arne Biesiekierski is a post-doctoral research fellow with SEAM, based out of Swinburne University. Arne’s primary research strengths are materials characterisation and design, and his research interests include:
- Metallic biomaterials for orthopaedic and vascular repair
- Biodegradable magnesium alloys
- Low elastic-modulus titanium alloys
- Shape memory alloys
Arne studied a bachelors of nanotechnology at Curtin University, which he completed in 2009 with 1st Class Honours. Earning an Australian Postgraduate Award, he then continued his studies through a PhD with the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology at Swinburne University, investigating the development of novel low-modulus Ti-based alloys for orthopaedic applications. Following conferral of his title, he took up a postdoctoral research role at RMIT University, continuing his investigation of Ti-based alloys, as well as investigating biodegradable Mg-based alloys for temporary implant repair. He subsequently transferred to SEAM in May 2020.
