Research Statement: David received his BS in mechanical engineering from Valparaiso University in 2015 and his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019. His PhD research took place in the Department of Radiology at UW, where he analyzed fluid dynamics of the cardiovascular system through the synergistic use of phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). His current work involves using both MRI and CFD to analyze the relationship between atrial fibrillation and cardiac blood flow, study sex differences in ventricular blood flow, and improve cardiovascular phase contrast MRI quantitative and qualitative results through CFD-informed machine learning.
