Sarah Waters

Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford


My research is in physiological fluid mechanics, tissue biomechanics and the application of mathematics to problems in medicine and biology. My work varies from classical applied mathematics problems motivated by physiological applications to highly interdisciplinary work. I collaborate with life scientists, clinicians, bioengineers, theoreticians and experimentalists to develop and solve models that are novel, realistic and provide insights into biomedical problems. The resulting models often lead to theoretical predictions that can be exploited in the laboratory.
