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 Jan 2023, home fees. For more information see this job advertLink opens in a new window or get in touch!
