TitlePhD in biofluid dynamics - virtual surgery of the nose
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Genoa, DICCA
LocationItaly, GE, Genoa
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, June 30, 2024
Description:
Thematic: Biological Fluid Dynamics
Project: Virtual surgery of the human nose via computational fluid dynamics
Keywords: biofluid dynamics, nasal flow, lungs, CFD
Skills required: numerical methods, CFD, engineering mathematics
Brief Description:

Nasal breathing difficulties (NBD) are as widespread and important as difficult to diagnose, owing to the 
anatomical complexity and extreme inter-subject variability of the human nose. Surgical corrections are often 
necessary, but the failure rate of such corrections is extremely high, with e.g. corrections of septal deviations 
failing in more than 50% of the cases. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is emerging as a powerful tool to 
diagnose NBD and to plan/evaluate strategies for surgical corrections beforehand. However, for the pre-
operative (pre-op) anatomy to be compared with the outcome of virtual surgery (post-op), one has to answer 
some fundamental questions: How shall the comparison be carried out?; How can well-being of a correctly 
functioning nose be measured or evaluated from a simulation?; How can such results be shared and 
communicated to the medical community? This topic is part of an ongoing collaboration with the 
polytechnical school of Milan and the Hospital San Paolo in Milan.

IT IS REQUIRED THAT YOU CONTACT ME BEFORE APPLYING TO THE POSITION. PLEASE WRITE A SHORT
