Chloe Armour

I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Chemical Engineering. My research is focused on working with patient data and developing computational fluid dynamic (CFD) models to predict the outcome of treatment for type B aortic dissection, primarily thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).

I recently completed my MEng in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. During my third year I studied at the University of Melbourne where I completed my first research project in the field of biofluids, looking at the cell-free layer and platelet margination, and I began my research into the treatment for aortic dissection in my final year at Imperial College. I love to travel and visit new places, and in my spare time I enjoy playing the piano and flute.
