Bio: Dr. Nordsletten joined the University of Michigan in January 2019 as an Associate Professor, is a Reader in cardiovascular biomechanics at King’s College London, and is the recipient of the EPSRC HTCA leadership fellowship. His research focuses on the novel application of biomechanics integrated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the advancement of human cardiovascular health. This broad focus encompasses a range of projects spanning from numerical methods development through to direct analysis of medical imaging data for diagnostics in cardiovascular disease.
The application of biomechanics in the heart and cardiovascular system has presented many opportunities to provide unique insights into physiology as well as potential tools for translation to clinical medicine. Key to this analysis is the merger with imaging and experimental tissue mechanics, providing a core underpinning for studying the heart and cardiovascular system. In this presentation, I will present recent work in my team exploring a variety of ways in which imaging, biomechanics and modelling can be leveraged to better understand tissues and blood flow in health and disease.
