  • Study Skills Lecturer

Profile

After finishing my MEng in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London, I moved to Oxford in 2019 to complete my DPhil in Mathematics, focusing on the design of new bioreactor technologies for applications in tissue engineering. Since 2023 I have now returned to Imperial as a Research Associate, working alongside Leyden Laboratories to develop within-host and between-host models to quantify the impact of novel prophylactic treatments against a range of respiratory viruses.

College Teaching

I have been a Study Skills lecturer at Lincoln since 2021, specifically working with students in mathematical and physical science subjects. In this role I provide one-to-one study skills support for undergraduate students, as well as lectures and workshops throughout the year, to help students learn how they learn best.

Research

My research interests focus on the mathematical modelling of fluid and mass transport phenomena for applications in biomedical research. Alongside collaborators in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, my DPhil project focuses on the modelling and design of novel tissue engineering bioreactors inspired by human vasculature. The development of such bioreactors aims to circumvent current treatment methods such as organ donation and transplantation, avoiding complications relating to bioavailability and biocompatibility with donor tissue.
