Jessica Crawshaw

Jessica was a PhD student at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne, working with A/Prof James Osborne and Prof Jennifer Flegg. During her PhD, Jessica developed a coupled fluid-structure-growth model of vascular regression to study the role of the local blood flow on cellular migration and capillary wall mechanics during development. Jessica has previously worked in experimental research, where she worked in an interdisciplinary team using Synchrotron based Phase-contrast X-ray imaging to better understand the mechanisms by which the lungs aerate at birth.
