Research interests

My research focuses on two main areas: medical 3d-printing and cardiovascular bioengineering. On the one hand, my research adresses the investigation of how 3d-printing could improve surgical and interventional procedures, medical device prototyping, tissue engineering and medical education. On the other hand, my efforts are devoted towards research and development of methods and devices to improve diagnostics and provide support to a range of cardiovascular pathologies.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

Additive manufacruting (aka 3d-printing), mechanical and hemodynamic in-vitro and ex-vivo test setups, mathematical modeling, system identification and control, biosignal processing/machine learning.
