Sinead Morley


Partner: University of Limerick

Sinéad Morley graduated with a degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Mechanical, Aeronautical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Limerick, in Ireland. She has continued her education by undertaking a PhD at the University of Limerick which looks at the characterising the flow behaviour of breast cancer cells in the lymphatic system using both numerical and experimental methods. Her experiments involve using micro Particle Image Velocimetry (uPIV) techniques to analyse the flow of breast cancer cells within microchannels.

Sinéad is currently working as a University of Limerick research fellow and a secondee to Vascular Flow Technology (VFT) in Dundee, UK, as part of the ReDVA project. Her work here involves using Computational Fluid Dynamics to investigate the local haemodynamics associated with arteriovenous fistulae required for haemodialysis.

Research Topics: Computational Fluid Dynamics, Lymphatic System, Microfluidics, Micro Particle Image Velocimetry, Breast Cancer.

2012 – Present: University of Limerick – Postgraduate Doctoral Student
2008 – 2012: University of Limerick – Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering (First Class Hons)
