Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


I received my bachelor's degree in medicine from the University of Medicine 1 (Yangon, Myanmar) and my Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). I started my PhD at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute in January, 2015.

Application of engineering and computer sciences in biology helps us understand more about our body system from molecular to organ system levels beyond our limitations. Bioengineering research is, therefore, playing a critical role in today's research field.

Patient-specific computational models of lung mechanics and gas exchange to optimize invasive mechanical ventilation

The aim of this research is to develop and validate a computational model for the invasively ventilated lung that is parameterized to ICU patient data, to predict optimal ventilation settings for the individual patient that avoid or minimize damage to the lung tissue, while maximizing the lung’s gas exchange function.

This will provide the first comprehensive model for simulating patient-specific lung function in response to MV, with direct links to patient data via a system identification approach, and meaningful biophysical function such that the model responds appropriately to interventions or insults.
