Lab Statement

Our current research centers on computational modeling for simulating complex multiphysics biological processes with the full complexity of the human/animal anatomy for applications including personalized simulation-assisted treatment planning, device development and optimization, bio-inspired design, and basic research. Particular emphases are on passive and active fluid-structure-acoustics interaction, neuromuscular biomechanics, inverse tissue characterization/parameterization, and machine-learning-aided modeling.
