Visual impairment and sight loss are costing the UK economy billions of pounds, with current treatments available unable to regenerate damaged cells and tissues in the eye. Spraying of cells directly into small rodents’ eye is one delivery mechanism that has been shown to promote cell proliferation and cell viability.
With glaucoma being the second world leading cause of blindness, developing an aerosol spray system, would promote cell delivery directly on the damaged area of the eye. This research combines computational and analytical modelling with product design and further biological knowledge.
My current research interests revolve around the use of mathematical modelling in biological settings (namely FEM and CFD) and how they are continuously revolutionized the world of Medicine. Prior to joining UCL, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for almost two years at Queen Mary University of London and was subsequently made an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2014.
I am currently working as Senior Postgraduate Teaching Assistant supporting Engineering Undergraduates with ‘Design & Professional Skills’ and ‘Mathematical Modelling & Analysis II’. In partnership with the IEP and the Brilliant Club I developed the Key Stage 2 Ice Cream Project. I am always opened to new teaching and learning experiences. My interests are health and fitness, languages and arts.
