The core of my research is fluid dynamics with focus on complex fluids commonly found in the human body (such as blood). The research is aimed at enhancing physical understanding of flow physics in order to enable better treatment in different clinical applications such treatment with ECMO, respirators and dialysis. My research group seeks to develop tools and methods to advance the understanding of the underlying processes. An example for such tools and models is the modelling and early detection of development of thromboembolic pathologies in clinical situations. The research is of both numerical and experimental character and is carried out in close collaboration with clinical partners.
