Dr Himanshu Kaul graduated with a Bachelors degree in Bioengineering from Arizona State University in 2007. He pursued his doctorate in Engineering Science as a Centenary Year and Una Goodwin Scholar at the University of Oxford. As part of his doctoral work, Himanshu created a computational framework to analyse biocomplexity in the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine context by integrating agent-based modelling with computational fluid dynamics. His work led to the amendment of the biological principle of dynamic reciprocity and the introduction of the concept of dynamic assimilation in computational systems biology. Himanshu also created an asthmatic virtual patient: the first agent-based model in respiratory medicine to predict the impact of therapies at the clinical level.
Himanshu is currently a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Trainee at the School of Biomedical Engineering, University of British Columbia, and developing computational and experimental tools to understand how biological events integrate across multiple scales of space and time to yield the hemogenic niche, which is the source of developmentally competent definitive blood stem and progenitor cells.
