I am Chief Engineer and Deputy Head of the Department of Cardiovascular Engineering, Institute of Applied Medical Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University. My focus is the research and development of highly innovative cardiovascular medical products, such as blood pumps, oxygenator and heart valve prostheses. My research interests are particularly on the interaction of the devices with blood, especially with respect to blood flow, hemocompatibility and the circulatory system.
