PhD position Computational Modeling of blood flow and position to asses measurements of non-invasive devices- CEA - Mines Saint Étienne (France)

miquel.aguirre's picture

The LS2P laboratory (from its French name, Laboratoire des Systèmes Portés par la Personne ) develops non-invasive devices for measuring physiological parameters such as heart rate, oxygen saturation or blood pressure. A strong integration is a key factor from the design stage of the sensors. This allows them to be integrated into bracelets, patches or headbands to make them compatible with their daily use.

The robustness of the measurement is a key factor in the relevance of these devices. It is obtained thanks to sensor technology and the performance of on-board signal processing algorithms. It also requires a good understanding of the physiology of the person faced with the disturbances encountered in daily life. The design of these devices is based on the development and use of numerical models to simulate the behavior of the human body.

The doctoral student will integrate the pôle avatar numérique team of the laboratory to study a deformable 3D model of the forearm and its vascular system. Digital signatures will then be defined to assess the influence of the person's position and movements on the dynamics of the vascular system. The results obtained will be validated by the analysis of experimental data.

We are looking for a candidate with a solid experience in mechanics and numerical modeling (CFD, FEM). Good programming skills are required and preferably previous experience in the development of computational mechanics tools. Motivation and interest in bioengineering is recommended. Excellent knowledge of written and spoken English is required.

The student will be supervised between CEA and Mines Saint Étienne. The supervision team will involve, from CEA, Xavier Bednarek and Mathieu Pierrollat. From Mines Saint Étienne, the project will be supervised by Miquel Aguirre, Baptiste Pierrat and Jérôme Molimard (thesis director).

If interested, please send cover letter and CV to : Jérôme Molimard (molimard@emse.fr) and Mathieu Perriollat (mathieu.perriollat@cea.fr).
