Miss Shelley Fong
Shelley Fong graduated from the University of Auckland in 2013 with a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Biomedical Engineering, and commenced her PhD in 2014, focussing on transport of ions and fluid across epithelial cells. She joined the SPARC MAP CORE team at the ABI in 2018.
Research | Current
As a computational modeller, she will focus on developing computational models in cellML, describing generic functional scaffolds which can be used to bring all functional data collected across the SPARC programme into a single cohesive framework for integrative analysis and visualisation of all organ systems.
This work involves developing and annotating biophysically and thermodynamically consistent models of cellular
processes using bond graph theory.
