I am a visiting graduate student researcher under supervision of Dr. Dan Ennis at Radiological Sciences Laboratories and VA Palo Alto. My current research interests include in vitro cardiovascular magnetic resonance flow imaging, patient-specific image-based modeling, and quantitative flow image analysis. In collaboration with the 3DQLAB at Stanford Radiology, we have been devloping a fully MRI-compatible cardiovascular flow loop setup which is able to embed subject-specific and compliant vessel models under physiological pressure and flow conditions. One focus has been the integration of a patient-specific type-B aortic dissection model to study flow and pressure in true and false lumen.
