Pulmonary Health

The aim of our research is to understand the relationship between pathological and mechanical properties of the lungs. In particular, we want to develop a computational fluid dynamics model to simulate airflow in the lungs by incorporating subject-specific lung images and physiological conditions. This approach will provide insights into the physiology of the lung and serve as a basis for the development of non-invasive diagnostic tools.
