I was born in La Coruña, Spain. I pursued my graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, where I earned a Master's degree in Flow Physics and Computation, and a PhD in Cardiovascular Biomechanics. I then worked as Engineering Research Associate in the department of Bioengineering. In September 2011, I started my Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) position in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at King's College London. In 2012, I got awarded an European Research Council Starting Grant to push forward the application of simulation tools in the clinic. I will continue to run this project through its completion in November 2018. In May 2014, I moved back to the States to the University of Michigan, where I am the Edward B. Diethrich associate professor of Surgery and Biomedical Engineering. Specialties: My current work is focused in the following areas: - Computational methods to model blood flow, including: - Fluid-Solid Interaction techniques. - Boundary Conditions. - Image-based Modeling. - Hypertension research, both systemic and pulmonary, using image-based models of animal and human data. - Fluid-Solid-Growth algorithms to describe stress-mediated growth and adaptation of blood vessels. - Cardiovascular device optimization.
