Short Biography

Ryo Torii joined the department as a lecturer in 2012 from the Department of Chemical Engineering and Harefield Heart Science Centre, Imperial College London, where he was working as Qatar Cardiovascular Research Center Fellow. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 2003 and worked as a research associate/fellow in the University of Tokyo and Imperial College London.

Research Interests

Ryo Torii’s main research interest is the application of integrated computational biomechanics and in vivo imaging to problems in clinical science and practice, particularly in cardiovascular area. The aim is to identify the roles of mechanical factors in the cardiovascular system in health, disease and post-operative conditions especially in relation to atherosclerosis, aneurysm and valvular diseases. His approach includes medical image processing, morphological analysis, computational fluid and solid mechanics, fluid-structure interaction analyses, and ex vivo tissue tensile tests.


Ryo co-supervises the research projects:

and actively collaborates on a number of other projects involving hemodynamic simulations, tissue engineered heart valves and tissue mechanics.
