Research Interests
Dr. Rugonyi's main research interests include the analysis of biological systems, and the development of mathematical and computational models that describe them. Finite element methods and other numerical techniques, when used with appropriate physically-based models, provide a means of calculating and visualizing the response of systems to different conditions. Dr. Rugonyi's current research is mainly on the study of cardiovascular systems, which includes the analysis of blood flow through vessels and the heart, as well as the interaction of flow with tissue.
