Alfonso Santiago is a Biomedical Engineer that is helping to develop a computational tool to model and simulate the heart. With this tool, device manufacturers -and in a future clinicians- can reproduce a patient's pathology and treatment to aid the design of the devices and optimise their implantation. Alfonso is interested in every step on the pipeline, from novel imaging techniques and how to optimise image segmentation to ways to improve the computational performance.
