Scientific interests

  • Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Methods
    • boundary conditions for physiological fluid dynamics (3D,1D)
    • multiscale modeling & numerical methods for their coupling
    • model parametrization from real data (multi scale approach, data assimilation)
    • coupling of agent-based and continuum models
  • Multiphysics modeling: fluid/solid interactions in deformable vessels and in porous media
  • Modeling and inverse problem for dynamic imaging interpretation (DCE-US, DCE-MRI, …, ICG fluorescence)
  • Applications
    • congenital heart disease (single ventricle, ToF) & acquired disease (aneurysms, stenosis, etc)
    • treatment planning (Fontan surgeries, percutaneous valve reducer, liver surgery)
    • coronary circulation
    • airflow and particle deposition in health and disease
    • oncology application: interaction between vascularization & tumor development
