Sophie graduated with a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from the University of Warwick in 2010. During this time she completed a number of modules in materials science and biomaterials.
Having ignited a passion for research, Sophie went on to study for a PhD in the Warwick Manufacturing Group under the supervision of Dr Kajal Mallick. Funded by the Chancellor’s scholarship, her research explored different calcium phosphate synthesis methods and the development of a 3D ink-jet printing method to manufacture porous structures intended for use in bone tissue engineering.
Following completion of her studies in 2013, Dr Cox was awarded an Early Career Fellowship and continued to work as a Project Engineer within the material’s research group at WMG. Sophie joined TRAILab in 2014 as a Research Fellow.
