LDI Alumni Profile
Dept. Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Monash University Clayton Campus
Supervisors: Dr Josie Carberry & Professor Andreas Fouras
Qualifications:BEng (Mech, Hons) Monash 2009
Masters topic:Application of X-ray Velocimetry to model asthma and microprocessor development to control the ventilator
Asthma is a disease which affects all age groups and is the most serious, chronic, disabling disease of children. This project involves modelling asthma using X-ray imaging and PIV. From the results, design and construction of a drug delivery system can be implemented to effectively deliver aerosol drugs into the lung without heating or degrading the drugs, having low residual volume and operation inline with the ventilator. Also involved is the development of microprocessors to fine tune control of the ventilation strategy.
