What Our Students Say
VO Thi Ngoc Tuoi | Applied Mathematics
Being a PhD student in Applied Mathematics has given me a golden chance of gaining in-depth knowledge and experience. The purpose of my project is to develop and analyze mathematical model governing the diffusion of a drug through a polymer-coated stent used for the prevention of restenosis. After my study, I could pursue a career in the biomedical device industry or in academia.
