Visits of International Scientists

From Feb 2017 to July 2017, Prof. Adam Wittek joined team MIMESIS as a visiting scientist. Prof. Wittek is with Intelligent Systems for Medicine Laboratory, School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at the University of Western Australia, Perth. His research focuses on patient-specific biomechanical modeling and he has published an important number of high-quality publications on this topic with more than 2,000 citations.

During his stay, Prof. Wittek provided his highly valuable expertise in various domains of patient-specific simulations and advanced techniques of modeling of deformations in soft tissues such as meshless methods. He was also involved in projects related to insertions of flexible needles into soft tissues.


From Jul 2017 to Dec 2017, Vincent Magnoux, a Canadian PhD student from École polytechnique de Montréal, joined MIMESIS as an international intern. During his stay, he has worked on implementing and validating a meshless method for computing organ deformation. This work also involved exploring methods to accelerate these computations on multi-core systems for an interactive simulation.
