Antonio Martinez Pascual

Early Stage Researcher 01

My name is Antonio Martinez and I come from Salobreña, a town in southern Spain. I am an Industrial Engineer from the University of Malaga (UMA), with a strong background on fluid dynamics and simulation. During my BSc, I had the opportunity to study at Brno  University of Technology thanks to the Erasmus programme, where I discovered how enriching it is to work in an international environment.
Between 2018-2019 I was employed by UMA as a junior researcher on a project on  aerodynamics of Micro Air Vehicles, where I investigated flexible flapping flight using strong fluid-structure interaction models. In 2020 I joined the MeDiTATe project, where I have been given the chance to put all my abilities at the service of clinicians, developing workflows to integrate simulation into clinical practice. I am grateful to contribute to medical innovation, surrounded by the greatest international experts on biomechanics under a stimulating and inspiring environment.
I started my PhD at Tor Vergata University of Rome (UTV) in July 2020. My work is focused on combining personalized closed-loop models with high-fidelity FSI simulations in order to identify fluid biomarkers which trigger ascending aortic aneurysm growth and compress the results using reduced order models and mesh morphing in order to provide real-time hemodynamic results to clinicians, with the ultimate goal of facilitating the diagnosis and surgical planning. I will be hosted by UTV during the first 18 months
and I will move to Ansys in Lyon for the second phase of my project.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 859836
