Jennifer Tweedy obtained a degree and PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Cambridge. Her PhD studies were in understanding pattern formation in the context of dynamical systems, before undertaking postdoctoral work in blood flow and urology, before joining the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial in 2006. Her current research involves mathematical modelling of problems arising in medicine, medical practice and biology, especially problems involving fluid dynamics.

Dr Tweedy offers PhD projects in her research areas. Please contact her for more details. Note that many of her publications are under her maiden name, Jennifer Siggers.
