Many congratulations to Hilary, who has completed her PhD.
Hilary’s thesis ‘Mathematical models of calcium signalling in the context of cardiac hypertrophy’ was supervised by Prof. Edmund Crampin and Dr Vijay Rajagopal, with Prof Llew Roderick (Leuven) and Prof Christian Soeller (Exeter). In her thesis, Hilary investigated the calcium signals that lead to growth of heart cells in disease conditions, by developing new mathematical models of calcium dynamics within heart cells.
After completing her thesis, Hilary was awarded the Australian Mathematical Society Lift-off Fellowship.
Hilary will be joining Prof Lee Sweetlove at the University of Oxford Department of Plant Sciences, to start a postdoctoral position on modelling plant metabolism.
