‣ An intricate interaction between the cardiovascular and lymphatic system is responsible for maintaining the fluid balance in the human body.
‣ If this balance is disturbed, it can have significant implications for a patient’s health. Computational flow models are ideally suited for simulating the physiology of these two networks in health and disease and to gain an understanding of their interactions.
‣ Hence, the aims within this Fully-Funded PhD Studentship in Engineering project are two-fold. Firstly the candidate will develop a 1D flow model of the cardiovascular system in pregnancy.
‣ The development of this model will be driven by the physiological data from pregnant women that were previously collected by our group.
‣ Data is available at different positions and at different stages of pregnancy. The developed model will be able to simulate the corresponding physiological changes.
‣ The second aim is to link the cardiovascular model to a lymphatic network model that allows us to study their interactions with a particular interest in the development of lymphoedema.
‣ Academic requirements: 1st class degree in Engineering, Physics or Maths (equivalent to 70%)
‣ or 2:1 degree (equivalent to 60%) plus a master’s degree.
‣ Applicants should also have:
‣ Please send a CV and covering letter to Dr Raoul van Loon: r.vanloon-at-swansea.ac.uk.
