Eirini Kardampiki

Early Stage Researcher 12

My name is Eirini Kardampiki and originate from Athens, Greece. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. Having chosen specialization in energy, I worked on numerous projects on solar parks, wind farms and hydroelectric plants. My diploma thesis focused on the optimization of the spatial allocation of a cluster’s cooling system employing EvolutionaryAlgorithms and CFD Software. 
Being aware of the imminent medical threats of our era that call for innovative virtual representations of human body and its organs, I promptly applied for the MeDiTATe project. The exploration of the delicate interconnection between engineering, health and technology is what motivates me most. 
As Early Stage Researcher 12, my project is divided into 18-month at RINA Consulting in Rome and 18-months in SINTEF Trodheim. Simultaneously I am enrolled as a Ph.D student at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.
The goal of my research activity is to support and improve the navigation technologies in endovascular interventions by adding and developing technological components. Computational models are generated with the aim to predict the flow field in function of the dynamic anatomical deformation. This deformation derives from movement/respiration or instrument manipulations and is handled with Radial Basis Functions and mesh morphing. Reduced Order Models are also employed since they offer a new perspective on the decision-making process. Image processing of the clinical data forthe build-up of 3D models is investigated to facilitate the patient-specific CAD model generation. Lastly, the multimodal image fusion (CFD and image navigation data) is explored as a tool with condensed information that can be applied in the clinical environment.
