Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Strathclyde with a passionate interest in the design and development of novel and paediatric cardiovascular implants, particularly heart valves from concept right through to commercialisation. My research originated from my doctorate on the development of a composite heart valve and has since significantly branched to include computational fluid and structural modelling analysis, development of physiological valve test platforms, and publication of a book chapter on blood–surface interactions. I have an active interest in device regulatory and data protection procedures associated with upcoming smart medical technologies and bespoke patient specific implants.
