Computational Methods for Fluid-Structure-Interaction with Cardiac Valves

We are interested in developing, implementing, and testing novel numerical methods with applications to simulating fluid-structure-interaction with cardiac valves. The student will work with the PI and a postdoc in the lab. The student will gain in-depth knowledge on analyzing numerical methods, will be exposed to the biomechanics of cardiac valves, and will learn to perform finite element simulations with cardiac valves.
