Our research interest is in engineering aspects of vascular biology with a focus on the interplay between hemodynamics, vascular physiology, and transport phenomena in vascular diseases. The long-term objective of this research is to allow better understanding of the biophysical determinants of vascular disease and to leverage this knowledge to develop innovative therapeutic approaches.
