Biography

I graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree specialising in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Auckland in 2015. I am now a doctorate candidate at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, beginning in 2016.

Research | Current

My research is based on developing a mathematical model of the calcium dynamics and electrophysiology in the gastrointestinal tract. Specifically, I am modelling the effects ion channel knockout has on the synchronicity of gastrointestinal electrical activity.

Thesis
