I have completed a MEng in Mechanical Engineering and six months of PhD research in the Graduate School of Medicine at Chiba University, Japan. My bachelor's thesis involved 1-D computational modelling of haemodynamic, while my master's thesis focused on coupling the autonomic nervous system with a 1-D/0-D haemodynamic model. During my Master's, I also conducted a project on the optimisation of coronary artery surgery using 3-D modelling in collaboration with medical doctors from Chiba University Hospital, Japan. I evaluated methods of statistical analysis for the dietary patterns and PCB contamination in pregnant women. I aim to pursue a career in biomedical engineering.
I have recently moved to London to grasp an opportunity which will broaden my horizons and allow me to reach my goals and ambitions while meeting and working with renowned researchers in the field.
My PhD project will develop and implement our exciting 1-D computational solver (Nektar1D
) to analyse the effect of medication on endothelial function. Detailed analyses of cardiovascular imaging data on rabbits along with measured vital data (e.g. blood pressure and blood flow) will be used. Furthermore, human vital data from the clinical database and the vital data of a virtual population
generated by Nektar1D
will be used for the assessment of endothelial function.
