Georgia Khinsoe
I am really grateful for the support of the Forrest Research Foundation as it gives me the opportunity to work with some of the best researchers in the world and bring that knowledge and expertise back to Perth to help to grow the blossoming biomedical engineering community in WA.

Georgia is a biomedical engineer who is deeply passionate about creating research that can be translated into tangible solutions. Her research focuses on developing computational blood flow simulations to predict patient outcomes and improve treatment options following aortic valve replacement. Aortic valve disease is becoming increasingly common with our ageing population, and the only way to treat severe aortic valve disease is through replacement of the valve. The aim of Georgia’s research is to simulate patient outcomes prior to intervention to allow the optimal type, size and position of the replacement valve to be determined, allowing treatment of aortic valve disease to become safer and more accessible. The project provides an opportunity to translate research directly into clinical practice, Georgia has expressed her hopes the research conduced will eventually be used clinically to increase the accessibility and affordability of healthcare.
