  • Christine Bui

    Christine Bui

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Cardiology
    Fellow in Pediatrics - Cardiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAlong with my internal medicine and pediatrics background, I have always been interested in palliative care and end of life. I would like to apply these interests to pediatric cardiology and adult congenital cardiology, as these patients often are critically or chronically ill, and would benefit from a palliative care perspective.

  • Alexander Kaiser

  • Luca Pegolotti

    Luca Pegolotti

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioLuca Pegolotti is a Postdoc in the Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Lab led by Prof. Alison Marsden. He is interested in data-driven model order reduction techniques for cardiovascular simulations. His areas of expertise include scientific computing, high-performance computing, and deep learning.

    Luca Pegolotti completed a BCs in Mathematical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 2014 and a MSc in Computational Science and Engineering at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2017. He graduated with a PhD in Mathematics at EPFL in 2020 under the supervision of his PhD advisor, Prof. Simone Deparis. In his thesis, "Reduction techniques for PDEs built upon Reduced Basis and Domain Decomposition Methods with applications to hemodynamics", he focuses on projection-based model order reduction methods for cardiovascular flow.

  • Martin Pfaller

    Martin Pfaller

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioMartin Pfaller is a postdoc in the group of Prof. Alison Marsden's Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Lab. His work focuses on physics-based and data-driven computational models for cardiovascular fluid and solid dynamics. Applications include congenital and acquired cardiovascular diseases, specifically the growth and remodeling of cardiovascular tissue.

    Martin graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich in 2019, working with Prof. Wolfgang Wall. His research enhanced solid mechanics models of the heart by studying the interaction between the myocardium and the pericardium. He demonstrated how projection-based model order reduction could be used to speed up model personalization from patient data, such as cine MRI or blood pressure measurements. He also showed how simulations could enable patient-specific therapy planning of radiofrequency catheter ablation in atrial fibrillation.
