Last week, Eirini Kardampiki, ESR12 of the MeDiTATe project successfully defended her PhD thesis at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.  The title of her presentation was “Development of Computational Tools for Cardiovascular Applications”.

Eirini demonstrated how to build patient-specific computational models to support clinicians’ decision-making procedures before or during Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR) operations. In this context, fluid (CFD) and structure (FE) computational models, mesh-morphing techniques, and Reduced Order Modelling (ROM) methods are adopted. The main advantage of the proposed approach is the combination of high-fidelity simulations for precise flow solution, RBF mesh morphing for rapid exploration of a wide spectrum of cardiovascular morphologies, and ROM for efficient real-time predictions. This integrated strategy enhances computational efficiency, enabling swift and accurate clinical applications in the cardiovascular field.

Congratulations Eirini! 🎓
