Salisbury Laboratories, 405E
- Visiting Assistant Professor, Mathematical Sciences
I am involved in two areas of research. First, I am performing MRI-based mechanical analysis, including structure-only finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) simulation, seeking the critical mechanical conditions which may be related to plaque progression and rupture. Second, I am performing 3D CMR-based patient-specific computational modeling to analyze RV flow and structure, stress/strain distributions, and assess RV cardiac function for optimal surgery design.
