PhD Project Opportunity

Project 1: Computational and Experimental Studies of Nasal Surgical Manoeuvres Disordered nasal airflow can lead to significant impairment in quality-of-life. As the incidence of nasal airway obstruction is high, surgery to relieve nasal obstruction is a commonly performed elective procedure. The engineering discipline of fluid dynamics provides highly detailed information on airflow behaviour that can…
