Research Description

The research conducted at Shadden Lab is focused on the advancement of theoretical and computational methods to model and understand fluid mechanics of biological systems. Much of this research is geared towards modeling and analyzing blood flow (hemodynamic) conditions in the cardiovascular system. This multidisciplinary research combines advances in medical imaging, mathematical modeling, and computational mechanics. Their motivations for this research are 3-fold: (1) to uncover biomechanical interactions underlying disease initiation and progression, (2) to improve diagnosis of cardiovascular deficiencies, and (3) to better engineer interventions and devices.
