Sita Drost


Partner: University of Limerick

Sita achieved her Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (specialisation: Biomedical Engineering) at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. She obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering in the Laboratory for Aero- and Hydrodynamics at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Her thesis was concerned with viscoelastic flow instabilities in micrometre- to millimetre-scale geometries, which were studied both experimentally and numerically.

Sita is now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Limerick, where she will perform Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements in a fistula model, which can be used to validate numerical results.
