Biography

My project is about estimating pressure in cardiovascular compartments non-invasively from PC-MRI. I have focused my research on improving the mapping of viscous pressure in the vasculature, through the solution of a Poisson equation on pressure, as we believe that friction stresses represent a potential biomarker for disease conditions. I am currently working on a Finite Difference formulation to reduce the impact on noise when computing pressure from the velocity vector fields from imaging data.
