Associate Professor Pillow has supervised PhD students for 11 years and is available to supervise students whose research interests include respiratory physiology or prematurity. Her students’ projects span multiple areas, such as biomedical engineering, physiology, biology and clinical disciplines.
Previous topics she has supervised include:
- High-frequency ventilation
- Respiratory function
- Lung development
- Innate immunity
She also teaches Advanced Techniques in Physiology, a coursework unit for honours students.
Faculty of Science
Faculty of Science is uncovering exactly how it has the power to change our world for the better
Preventing, diagnosing and treating disease
Our wide-ranging research addresses some of the world's most significant health issues, from prevention and diagnosis, to treatment and cure.
For this research, our physiology researchers are seeking a greater understanding of how the human body functions and interacts with its surrounding environment.
Anatomy and human biology
The anatomy and human biology research discipline studies the functional and biological features of humans and their behaviour.
