Professional Summary:

My research career focuses on improvement of endovascular image guided interventions and encompasses three major components: vascular disease research, endovascular device development and medical imaging. Since the beginning of my research I tried to develop and test endovascular device in patient relevant physiology in a lab setting. I developed the first balloon deployable asymmetric flow diverters nearly eight years ago and test them in idealized aneurysms phantoms. Over the years with my collaborators at Toshiba Stroke and Vascular Research Center (TSVRC), I developed an entire chain of manufacturing and testing of such devices. Concerning imaging, my research is focused on physiological conditions determination based on imaging such as angiography and CT and micro-CT.
