I am interested in the research of human cardiovascular disease (CVD) such as atherosclerosis and aneurysms. My current studies focus on the clinical-oriented risk assessment of CVD, aiming to develop a better understanding, and ultimately a better management of such diseases.
As part of the translational research I perform numerical analysis based on in vivo imaging data of anatomical and functional modalities, such as magnetic resonance (MR), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and positron emission tomography (PET). By combining the imaging modalities with mathematical modelling, particularly finite element analysis, a more comprehensive assessment of clinical risk could be achieved.
