Section: 1 - Mechanics (MECHANICS)
I am a researcher with interdisciplinary expertise motivated by the modelling of complex multi-scale multi-physics problems.
I spent 7 years of research in the field of radiative hydrodynamics, where I both designed and interpreted experiments on large laser facilities such as OMEGA and Laser Megajoule. Willing to act for a concrete and direct social concern I considered building bridges between physics and clinics. Since 2018, I am combining computer models based on physical laws with clinical data to better characterize brain aging.
I am happy to join the team of Professor Kent Andre Mardal in september 2020 as a post-doc fellow. I will develop a 1D-3D modeling framework to better understand the mechanical interactions between blood, cerebrospinal fluid and brain tissue and their role in Alzheimer's desease.
