Welcome to the Mulitscale Cardiovascular Fluids Laboratory
2022 Lab Team
In our lab, we focus on understanding blood flow (hemodynamics) under healthy and pathological conditions to understand, detect, diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. We work closely with clinicians, thereby ensuring that our research is always patient-focused. We use a combination of tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of blood flow, virtual surgery and optimization, reduced order modeling of the cardiovascular system, predictive modeling, 3D printing and rapid prototyping. I envision a future where personalized medicine will deliver on its promise and I plan to contribute towards it by incorporating synergistic and interdisciplinary technologies that improve patient outcomes.

10-14-2022 The MCFL is featured with two students and our PI in promotional video for our program show
In 2020, Florida Tech announced the creation and construction of a Health Science Research Center with the focus on expanding the university’s existing Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science Programs. After several long years of waiting and COVID delays, the new building was just recently opened and has became home to the thriving research community of the department. In a marketing video for this new building and its technologies, the MCFL was highlighted for its use of demonstrating technologies with both VR and Deep Learning. See the attached video to learn more.
