Dr Alisa Selimovic
2009 Menzies Scholar in Engineering
Alisa Selimovic holds the degree of Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering from Flinders University with First Class Honours and the University Medal. Alisa commenced her DPhil at Oxford University in October 2009. Her DPhil is concerned with creating patient-specific models of cerebral aneurysm evolution. The research is aimed at gaining a better insight into the mechanisms of the disease, and, ultimately, to assist with clinical decision-making.
The main task of the project is the integration of a novel Fluid-Solid-Growth model within patient-specific arterial geometries. This allows the simulation and coupling of a structural model of an evolving aneurysm to a realistic, patient-specific haemodynamic environment.
