Assessing risk of heart failure with cardiac modelling and statistical inference

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow
Department Name: School of Mathematics & Statistics


In recent years, we have witnessed impressive developments in the mathematical modelling of complex physiological systems. However, parameter estimation and uncertainty quantification still remain challenging. This PhD project will give you the opportunity to join an interdisciplinary research team to develop new methodologies for computational modelling and inference in cardio-mechanic models. Your ultimate objective will be to contribute to paving the path to a new generation of clinical decision support systems for cardiac disease risk assessment based on complex mathematical-physiological models. You will aim to achieve patient-specific calibration of these models in real time, using magnetic resonance imaging data. Sound uncertainty quantification for informed risk assessment will be paramount. This is an ideal PhD project for a postgraduate student with a strong applied mathematics and statistics or Computer Science background who is interested in computational mechanics and adapting cutting-edge inference and pattern recognition methods from Machine Learning and Bayesian modelling to challenging cardio-mechanic modelling problems. The project will give you the opportunity to join a cross-disciplinary Research Hub that aims to push the boundaries of quantitative medicine and improve cardio-vascular healthcare by bringing cutting-edge mathematical and statistical modelling into the clinic.
