Personal profile

Research interests

Andrew is currently involved in several areas of research applying computational modelling to important problems in medicine and industry. A primary interest is in building a complete in silico pipeline for simulating magnetic resonance imaging of cardiovascular physiology in order to optimise diagnostic protocols and provide prognostic decision support to clinicians.

  • Computational modelling of cardiovascular diseases
  • Optimisation of medical imaging
  • In silico design of imaging contrast agents
  • Scientific software development for finite element methods
  • Mixing in laminar flows
  • Flow instability in helical pipes
  • Poroelastic fluid mechanics

He is involved in the following projects:

GW4 Translational Biomedical Research Network 


Willing to supervise PhD

1. Combining machine learning with modelling to improve medical imaging in cardiology.
