Alumna profile

Hayley graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering awarded with First Class Honours from The University of Auckland in 2003. She then worked for a year at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute as a research scientist developing musculo-skeletal models of the hand and forearm, before enrolling in a PhD in 2005.

Her doctoral research involved developing computational modelling techniques to visualise and analyse patterns of melanoma spread through the lymphatic system and was carried out in collaboration with clinicians from the Sydney Melanoma Unit.

Hayley completed her doctoral thesis in 2008, after which she worked for the ABI's Biomechanics for Breast Imaging group, which aims to improve the detection of breast cancer. She worked alongside clinicians from Auckland City Hospital to clinically validate the group's biomechanical modelling framework for mapping between Magnetic Resonance (MR) and mammogram images of the breast.

In 2011 Hayley left the ABI to take up a research associate position at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
