Developed an approach based on the Curvilinear Immersed Boundary method coupled with Rotation Free Finite Element method which allowed to simulate Cardiovascular problems as an interaction of deformable heart leaflets with a pulsate blood flow in a real aorta. I employed this methodology to carry out fluid–structure interaction simulations of a healthy trileaflet aortic valve (TAV) and a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) placed in the same anatomic aorta.

Developed and provided simulations of invasive species (Asian Carp) attempting to swim through locks and dams (LDs) of the Mississippi River. Simulation using ANSYS-FLUENT was provided to estimate fish passage through LD 4, 5 under variety of lock and dam gates adjustments and flow discharges. As a result of these simulations, the proposed gate adjustments allowed to block over 50% of invasive carp trying to pass through the dams. This information was used to recommend optimum spillway gate positions to the US Army Corps of Engineers.
