Office hours: Tue 13:30-14:30 (Term 1 2022/23)

PhD position available! 

The project's topic is a haemodynamic problem in health care, its aim is to develop a software tool to inform clinical decisions.
Based in Engineering, you work in a multidisciplinary team and study artificial intelligence (AI) tools to extract geometric data from images and use them then to perform numerical blood flow simulations, thus enriching the patient-specific image data and enabling better predictions.
Desired start is as soon as possible from Oct 2022.

More information soon, if you are interested then feel free to get in touch already!
