1 PhD position in Real time brain-perfusion simulation for Acute Ischemic Stroke using machine learning-based reduced order modelling

Objective: the objective of this doctoral position is to develop a real-time model of brain perfusion, by coupling a 1D-FSI model of blood flow with a 3D brain model of brain perfusion. Acceleration of the computation will be carried out using machine learning based reduced order modelling, leveraging from current work carried out at by the supervisors at CIS. Once available, the model will be coupled with additional models to provide a decision support tool for Acute Ischemic Stroke treatment.
