About Me


I am a postgraduate engineer at the University of Manchester, working towards a PhD within the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering.  My research is based around the modelling and simulation of vascular structures across a number of scales, and in particular investigating the effects of fluid-structure interaction on the pathogenesis of diseases such as the formation of aneurysms.  Away from my research, I am actively involved in outreach activities with local schools, currently holding a position of Widening Participation Fellow.  This role consists of designing and leading workshop activities, as well as giving presentations, both with the aim of encouraging school pupils to consider higher education and in particular, engineering.
