Academic Visitors

Alireza Jafarinia 2023.5-2023.6

Alireza Jafarinia, in his research visit to our group from 2023.5 to 2023.6 at Imperial College London, aimed to validate a novel computational thrombosis model developed by the candidate in collaboration with Dr. Chloe Harriet Armour at Imperial College London.  Specifically, his research is to refine our thrombosis model and improve validations with patient-specific imaging data.

Jincheng Liu 2023.9-2024.3

His PhD research work mainly focuses on the development of non-invasive diagnostic techniques for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular. During his PhD, He developed a series of noninvasive diagnostic methods and systems, including noninvasive computation of fractional flow reserve fraction (FFR) and noninvasive computation of cerebral blood flow and oxygen metabolism. These innovative methods enable physiologically intelligent computation of coronary and cerebral blood flow, providing the feasibility of non-invasive measurement of clinical cardiovascular and cerebrovascular-related indices.
