Martin Dr Martin Buist (lab head). Martin obtained his Phd from University of Auckland in New Zealand. A full list of publications is on Google Scholar.
Alberto Dr Alberto Corrias. Alberto obtained a 5-year degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano Technical University (Milan, Italy) before working for two years in the pharmaceutical industry (AstraZeneca). In 2009, he received a PhD in Bioengineering from the National University of Singapore. He then joined Oxford University (UK) as a post-doctoral fellow for a period of two years before returning to NUS to work as a lecturer. While in Oxford, he was part of the development team of Chaste, a C++ software for computational biology. He is generally interested in applying computational methods to medical problems, particularly in the heart and gastrointestinal tract areas. A full list of publications is on Google Scholar.

PhD students

Yier Li Yier. Yier Li received his BE (Hons) degree in biomedical engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2016. He is currently working towards the PhD degree from the NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering. His current research interests include developing mathematical cell models of cell electrophysiology to explore the mechanisms underlying electrical activity of the gastrointestinal tract.
Yier Karthic Anabalakan. My current area of interest is in interventional cardiology. Particularly, in the innovation and development of drug-coated balloons to treat coronary occlusions. Presently, I’m in the process of developing a model to analyse the uptake of various drugs in the coronary vasculature. I hope to employ computational methods to expedite research and development in interventional cardiology.
Swati Swati Sharma. Swati is a PhD student in the Computational Bioengineering Lab, NUS. Her current doctoral research interest includes applying computational biomechanics methods in the area of the gastrointestinal tract. Swati received her master’s degree (Hons) in Applied Mechanics (IIT Delhi, India) and her BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering. Before joining NUS, she worked as an R&D engineer in the automotive indsutry. Furthermore, she has teaching experience in different engineering colleges.
Mina Mina Niazi. Mina obtained her bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering in 2018, and joined NUS Biomedical Engineering department as a PhD candidate in 2019. Her current research mainly focuses on developing mathematical models that describe electrophysiology of certain cells in gastrointestinal tract
