I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Chemical Engineering. My research is focused on numerical modelling and analysis of different aortic valve, root and conduit prostheses for patients with aortic valve disease. The results will be used to improve current prosthesis designs and develop new options.
I completed my undergraduate studies in Mathematics at The University of Sheffield, where I developed an interest in fluid mechanics and continued my studies with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering at Cranfield University. The following two years I worked as a CFD Engineer for a leading consultancy company where I gained extensive experience with aerodynamic analysis, development and optimisation using OpenFOAM – particularly with high performance race cars.

My research interests primarily include fluid mechanics, numerical modelling, analysis, development and optimisation. My research project involves patient-specific numerical modelling of the aorta of patient’s having undergone aortic valve replacement. This research pays particular attention to transitional modelling, analysing the influence of different valves on laminar to turbulence transition. Numerical models include computational fluid dynamics and fluid-structure interactions, with results used to improve current prosthesis designs and develop new options.
