Maria Vila Pouca

Universidade do Porto – University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

September 2018 (4 months) – Mechanical Engineering

Maria wants to specialize in computational bioengineering, a recent field that applies the latest computational capabilities to deal with medical problems. Employing the finite element method and through appropriate software, Maria intends to model and simulate biological components in order to analyse and determine the effects of mechanical stresses and strains as well as interactions of different components and tissues on clinical outcomes.
