Last week, on December 1st, Leonardo Geronzi, ESR02 of the MeDiTATe project successfully defended his PhD thesis at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata“.  The title of his work was “Towards Digital Twin Technologies for Ascending Aortic Aneurysm Growth Prediction and Real-Time Diagnosis”.

Leonardo demonstrated how to structure a Digital Twin of the aorta based on high-fidelity numerical simulation, integrating methods for aneurysm growth and risk prediction and using surrogate modeling techniques to achieve real-time hemodynamic assessment.

Congratulations Leonardo!🎓
