Group meeting with Timm, Charles, Arunn and Martin (from left to right).
Current Group Members
PhD student: particle separation
Rohan is my first PhD student. He started his project in October 2014. Rohan uses simulations to look at new ways to exploit deterministic lateral displacement for the separation of blood components and other biological particles.
PhD student: atherosclerosis
Arunn started in March 2015. He is co-supervised by Peter Hoskins. Arunn's project is about the modelling of blood flow in constricted vessels to better understand mechanisms leading to atherosclerosis.
PhD student: angiogenesis
Charles obtained the prestigious Principal's Career Development Scholarship and the Edinburgh Global Research Scholarship. He is looking at tumour-induced blood vessel growth (angiogenesis) under the influence of blood flow and related effects, such as wall shear stress. Charles is co-supervised by Peter Hoskins.
PhD student: diffusion in blood flow
Yunzhou started in May 2017 and is my most recent PhD student, co-supervised by Peter Hoskins. Yunzhou is looking at the shear-induced diffusion of small particles and molecules in blood flow.
PhD student: immune system and hypertension
Greg's project is about the interplay of proteins, the immune system and blood flow, and their role in high blood pressure. Greg's other supervisors are Neeraj (Bean) Dhaun (Centre for Cardiovascular Science) and Filippo Menolascina (Institute for Bioengineering).
Christopher Tay (UG research student, 2017/18)
