Joakim Sundnes, PhD is a Senior Research Scientist at Simula Research Laboratory.

He is working with the inHeart project at Simula togehter with Henrik Finsberg, a PhD scholar at Simula.

The inHeart project focuses on improving the robustness and efficiency of the computational models. The aim is to achieve this by developing new mathematical models for describing the contracting heart muscle tissue, and by improving the computational methods used to solve the resulting equations. Furthermore, the wish is to link the computational framework with software that enables efficient construction of models from medical images, to allow building computer models of individual patients. Patient specific models have a huge potential for clinical use in diagnosis and treatment optimization, but their use is currently limited by the lack of robust and usable computational tools, and by the lack of proper validation.
