Vasiliki Voulgaridou


2017-Current: PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Uk
2015-2016: MSc Medical Physics, University of Aberdeen
2010-2015: BSc Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Vasiliki is a PhD student in Dr Vassilis Sboros’s group. The research in this group concentrates on developing algorithms for the tracking of micro-bubbles that are used as contrast agents in Ultrasound(US) imaging. Along with her secondary supervisor, Prof. Steven McDougal (Institute of Petroleum Engineering) she will create virtual vascular networks and investigate how different parameters of tumour induced angiogenesis can be imaged with US.

Primary supervisor: Dr. Vassilis Sboros
