Research Interests

My  research interests include biomedical engineering and bioprocessing, with a special focus on transport processes in biological and physiological systems. My current research covers the following topics: image-based analysis of cardiovascular fluid mechanics and mass transport, multi-scale modelling of drug delivery to solid tumour, nanoparticle-mediated drug delivery in cancer and thrombolytic therapies, rheological behaviour of biomass suspensions and solid-liquid mixing in bioreactors for the production of fuels from energy crops.
