Research Interests

Our research is geared towards modeling and analyzing hemodynamic conditions in the cardiovascular system. This research combines advances in medical imaging, mathematical modeling, and computational mechanics. Our motivations are 3-fold: (1) to uncover biomechanical interactions underlying disease initiation and progression, (2) to improve diagnosis of cardiovascular deficiencies, and (3) to better engineer interventions and devices.
