Giuseppe Di Labbio has a tremendous passion for research, teaching and learning. He is principally fond of pure and applied fluid dynamics and has built a high level of expertise in experiment design and control, particle image velocimetry, numerical methods in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and advanced pre- and post-processing techniques for fluid flow data. Many of these modern and classical processing techniques have been coded and combined in the MATfluids open source library. You can find his lecture notes here and links to his publications and proceedings here. A full CV is available for download below as well as several links to common academic media profiles.

Pathological Left Ventricular Flows

The left ventricle is the heart's powerhouse, responsible for pumping oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood to each and every tissue throughout the body. It's no wonder why diseases of the left ventricle are not only more common but often more debilitating than those of other heart chambers. Understanding how these diseases incrementally change the flow in the left ventricle can lead to better diagnostic metrics to detect these diseases at their onset and promote earlier disease management strategies.

Cardiovascular Flows

With cardiovascular diseases being the leading cause of death in the world, killing 17.9 million people in 2016 (World Health Organization), there is an urgent need to find ways of detecting and treating these diseases early-on. The fluid dynamics in the heart and in our arteries and veins are highly sensitive to change and can therefore be leveraged to serve for early disease detection. Research in cardiovascular flows is of course not limited to cardiovascular diseases but has immense applications in the development, testing and optimization of implantable medical devices.
