Develop point-of-care microfluidic technologies for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

Excessive clotting (thrombosis) leads to the cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke, killing one Australian every 12 minutes. It has long been recognized that platelets play a central role in thrombosis and are unique in their ability to form stable adhesive interactions under conditions of rapid blood flow.We've recently discovered a new ‘biomechanical’ prothrombotic mechanism that highlights the remarkable platelet sensitivity to the shear stress gradients of blood flow disturbance. Importantly, we've found that current anti-thrombotic drugs, such …

Numerical study and parameter estimation for fractional order epidemic models

In the last decades, some epidemic diseases have been found to cause problems whose magnitude has increased dramatically. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently stated that it is the most important arthropod-borne viral disease of humans.These epidemic diseases include:dengueHIV/AIDSH1N1leptospirosismeaslesSIRSIRCSEIRsalmonella bacterial.Fractional derivatives epidemic systems have also been used to deal with some epidemic behaviors.This proposal aims to carry out innovative and novel research on developing effficient, robust and accurate computational models and parameter estimation techniques for fractional order epidemic models. …

Fractional dynamic models for viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluid

This project aims to develop a mathematical framework to investigate the memory effect and anomalous diffusion in viscoelastic, non-Newtonian fluids.We aim to generate new knowledge on the formulation and estimation of the multi-term fractional space-time models governing the flow and heat transfer of these fluids. This will be based on recent advances in fractional calculus, computational methods and statistical techniques.We expect to uncover a new and efficient computational system to model the thermal properties as well as new insights into …

Computational modelling of liquid marbles

Liquid marbles are liquid droplets coated with super-hydrophobic particles. They possess interesting properties such as the ability to contain liquid content without wetting surfaces and enhanced elasticity.Numerous experimental studies on liquid marbles and their properties have already been reported in the literature. For example, novel microfluidic applications, miniature bioreactors and gas sensing mechanisms. Despite plenty of experimental work, there is limited computational modelling investigations of liquid marbles represented in literature.A successful numerical model would be able to derive new insights …
