The University of Cape Town is pleased to announce the
appointment of Christopher L Vaughan as the Hyman Goldberg
Professor and Chairman of Biomedical Engineering. Kit, as
he is known, has studied at universities in South Africa
(BSc Honours in applied mathematics and physics from
Rhodes), the United States (PhD in musculoskeletal
biomechanics from Iowa) and Great Britain (Post-Doctoral
Fellowship in orthopaedic engineering at Oxford).

For the past six years, Dr Vaughan has been with the
University of Virginia in Charlottesville, USA where he was
a tenured Professor of Orthopaedics and Biomedical
Engineering. His scholarly activities have concentrated on
the mechanics of human locomotion, encompassing both
mathematical modelling and the treatment of children with
cerebral palsy. He currently serves as the Secretary-
General for the International Society of Biomechanics. Kit
is delighted to be back at the University of Cape Town
after a break of ten years and he looks forward to the
challenge of building the Department into an outstanding
centre of excellence for biomedical engineering.
