Microcirculatory fluid and mass transport
Through the use of mathematical modelling, we hope to bridge the gap between tissue-scale and microcirculatory environments. Hence, providing a leap in the direction of providing a more comprehensive diagnoses, superior forms of therapy and consequently, greater chances of recovery from vascular pathophysiological conditions.
In 2009, Paul joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Southampton as an Undergraduate studying Mathematics. Developing an interest in Applied Mathematics, his work culminated in a research project modelling tear film dynamics under the supervision of Professor Colin Please. Continuing his interest in Fluid Dynamics, Paul undertook an MSc in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College London with his research focusing on high Reynolds number laminar flow and shock propagation, supervised by Prof. Ruban Anatoly.
In 2013, Paul joined the Healthcare Engineering for an Aging Population (HEAP) research group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UCL, for a four-year DTP under the supervision of Dr Rebecca Shipley and Dr Simon Walker-Samuel (CABI). His work seeks to develop mathematical models of fluid and mass transport in microvascular networks, whilst simulating microcirculatory pathophysiological conditions.
