OFFER DESCRIPTION

The main task to achieve would be to give engineering support on several modelling projects related to fluid simulations in the left atrial appendage. Advance experience on extracting structural data from medical images, set up boundary conditions, build models in softwares such as Ansys in the medical domain, and statistics to analyze large simulation databases is required. Knowledge about cardiac physiology, pathologies and devices would be beneficial. Good team-work skills is a must.

The selected candidate will be in charge of running multiple fluid simulations in applications related to the left atrial appendage. Finite-element meshes will be built from medical images to create the geometrical domain where to run haemodynamic simulations. The commercial Ansys software will be used as a solver. Post-processing of simulations will be necessary to extract in-silico indices to characterize the obtained velocity fields, identifying vortices and regions with low velocities. Scenarios will be simulated with different cardiac devices in order to personalize them to a given patient's geometry. Sensitivity analysis will be performed in order to determine which parameters influence the most the obtained simulations. In-silico haemodynamics indices will be combined with morphological parameters for the prediction of thrombus formation. All these tasks will be part of some deliverables of a national project.
