Research Area

Computational simulations for cardiovascular applications.

Research Outline

Study of the phenomenon of blood clot formation in the left atrial appendage (LAA) during atrial fibrillation, in order to relate different LAA shapes with the risk of thrombus formation, with the final goal to aid personalised clinical treatment. The study involves both experimental and computational methods.


After her Bachelor and Master degree in Biomedical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy), and a period in St Jude Medical as Field Technical Engineer in Cardiac Rhythm Management department, Giorgia joined the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science & Great Ormond Street Hospital (London, UK) for a PhD programme sponsored by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). During her PhD project she had the chance to conduct multidisciplinary research focusing on engineering methodologies for the study of transcatheter valve implantation, specifically developing and validating patient-specific computational models, with the final aim to translate computer techniques in clinical practice.  She obtained her PhD in 2016, when she was also awarded the BHF Immediate Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to work on a project related to thrombus formation and fluid dynamics in the left atrial appendage in the Mechanical Engineering department of UCL.
