Say hi to my first potential foster failures! đŸ˜» These two sisters got out of a situation with 60 (!) cats and are now looking for a forever home. Until then, I get to spoil the hell out of them 😊 #cat #catsofinstagram Not having to worry about anything other than whether the view out of your tent in the morning will be better here or a couple of metres over there... #spaholiday

Lightning fast this time because I was good and wrote all (most) of the text during the trip. Hit the link in my bio 🔝 for a story about views and non-views on the peaks, being chased by rain clouds, spotting whale bones and live whales, and more.

Including learning how to panickingly take down and pack in my tent during gale force winds in the middle of the night. Blog post coming up soon!

Best Poster Award at Computing in Cardiology in Singapore

My poster entitled “Porous modelling of cardiac perfusion to optimise targeted drug delivery” won a best poster award at the conference Computing in Cardiology 2019 in Singapore.

On the poster I presented a novel efficient method to track the distribution of nanoparticles or other tracers within the supplying arteries of the heart. Traditionally, tracer distributions are modelled using advection-diffusion kinetics, which is a nonlinear equation and thus incur large computational costs to solve. Our method overcomes this problem by recognising the large differences in blood velocities between larger and smaller arterioles, and capillaries. Using our method a full cardiac cycle can be simulated on a conventional laptop within minutes, opening the door towards simulating full experimental time frames of thirty minutes or longer.
