Biography

I obtained my bachelor and master degrees in theoretical and applied mechanics from Fudan University, and my PhD in computational biomechanics from Brunel University. My personal webpage and my google scholar page. 

Research interests

I have been working on mathematical modelling of the arterial wall, heart, mitral valves and their interactions in the field of soft tissue mechanics. In particular modelling of myocardial infarction patients. Recent research extends to applying various machine learning methods to cardiac mechanics. In detail, 

  • Soft tissue mechanics: constitutive modelling of soft tissue (myocardium, mitral valve, arterial wall, etc.), and its calibration from experimental data; constrained-mixture theory-based growth & remodelling in soft tissue;
  • Personalized cardiac modelling: imaged-derived model construction, model personalization for subject-specific prediction through inference (Bayesian and non-Bayesian), biomechanical biomarker discovery;
  • Multi-physics modelling: fluid-structure interaction using immersed boundary method with finite element extension, coupling of electro-physiology and soft tissue mechanics and blood flow in human heart, cardiac poroelasticity, electro-mechanics coupling;
  • Machine-learning based surrogate models: fast parameter inference in real-time, uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis;
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging processing: deformable image registration, AI-based segmentation and reconstruction.
