My current fellowship project is focusing on developing image based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models to assess hemodynamics and aide in non-invasive diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension. This work is utilising and building upon methodologies I developed during my PhD, in which I built CFD models of aortic dissection based up medical imaging data such as CT, 4D-flow MRI, and echocardiogram.

My research interests include fluid dynamics and transfer processes and their application in biological systems. Specifically, my work focuses on using clinical patient data to build detailed computational models of cardiovascular diseases.
Current: Development of an integrated clinical imaging and computational modelling workflow for non-invasive assessment of hemodynamics in pulmonary hypertension - towards a digital twin.
Post-Doc: Development of fluid-structure-interaction models of healthy and bioprosthetic aortic valves.
PhD: Computational analysis of hemodynamics and thrombosis in aortic dissection for clinical applications.
