Research overview

Sargon is a full-time PhD student at the System Modelling research group in the School of Mathematical and Geospatial Sciences. His PhD is jointly supported and supervised by RMIT University and the CSIRO, under the Industry Doctoral Training Centre.

His research interests are in applied mathematics and engineering; particularly in the fields of continuum mechanics, biomechanics, computational engineering and aircraft design.

Current research project

Sargon is presently working on developing a mathematical model to predict the evolution of atherosclerotic lesions in diseased human arteries.

The model is designed to forecast the spatial and temporal development of atherosclerotic lesions on timescales of years, with computational costs of only days. This will allow characteristics such as the behaviour and growth nature of atherosclerosis to be assessed in a controlled environment, thereby giving insight into possible mechanisms to regulate the disease.
