Scientific interests

  • Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Methods
    • boundary conditions for physiological fluid dynamics (3D,1D)
    • multi-domain modeling & numerical methods for their coupling
    • model parametrisation from real data (multi-level approach, data assimilation)
    • combining biophysical modeling and machine-learning
  • Applications
    • congenital heart disease (single ventricle, ToF) & acquired disease (aneurysms, coronary disease,…)
    • treatment planning & evaluation (liver surgery, pulmonary hypertension/CHD palliation)
    • airflow and particle deposition in health and disease
    • non-invasiving image (in particular dynamic contrast enhanced imaging)
