About Dr Rebecca Shipley
After an Undergraduate Masters degree in Mathematics at the University of Oxford, I completed my DPhil at the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in Dec 2008, working on multiscale mathematical models that link capillary microstructure and tissue-scale blood perfusion and drug delivery. Next I was awarded a Research Fellowship at Christ Church, Oxford to develop mathematical models that describe biomechanical and biochemical stimulation of tissues, and concurrently held Visiting Research Fellowships at two experimental labs (Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Bath and Tissue Repair and Engineering Centre, UCL), where I integrated mathematical models with experimental data to inform the design of bioreactors for tissue engineering. My research at the interface between theoretical modelling and tissue engineering experimentation led to the award of “Young researcher of the year” for the UK Tissue and Cell Engineering Society in Jul 2011. I took up my Lectureship at UCL in 2012.
