Dr Shahrokh Rahmani
Dr. Shahrokh Rahmani completed his B.Sc., M.Sc., and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering-Biomechanics from Iran University of Science and Technology. Following this, he pursued his Postdoctoral Research at Technical University of Denmark where he focused on biomechanical modelling of biological soft tissue deformation. Dr. Rahmani then joined University College London as a Research Fellow in the mechanical engineering department, where he worked on dynamic whole organ modelling utilizing hierarchical Phase Contrast Tomography (HiP-CT) technique. He also developed image processing pipelines to handle the large datasets generated by this technique, and computational models of biological systems.
For the past five years, Dr. Rahmani has been working in the field of cardiovascular biomechanics, focusing on numerical modelling, experimental protocols, and image analysis pipelines to image large tissue volumes at high resolution. Recently, Dr. Rahmani has become a member of CEMRG and been collaborating with researchers at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. His current work involves MRI image-based modelling of the mechanical and structural function of the cardiovascular system under different pathologies, including Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy.
