Personal profile

Research profile

Charles Taylor is part-time Professor of Patient-specific Computational Modelling Technology and its Clinical Application at the TU/e department of Biomedical Engineering, research group Cardiovascular Biomechanics. His main affiliation is with HeartFlow, Inc. (Redwood City, USA) where he serves as the Chief Technology Officer. He is also a Consulting Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford University.  

Charles Taylor is internationally recognized for his pioneering work in combining computer simulation methods with medical imaging data for patient-specific modeling of blood flow to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. He pioneered the field of image-based modeling by performing the first computer simulations of blood flow in patient-specific models derived from medical imaging data. 

Academic background

Charles Taylor received BSc (1987) and MSc (1991) degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA), where he also obtained a MSc in Mathematics in 1992. In 1996, he obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University (USA). He joined the faculty at Stanford in 1997 where he developed an internationally recognized research program in the departments of Bioengineering and Surgery focused on the development of computer modeling and imaging techniques for cardiovascular disease research, device design and surgery planning. In 2004, he was appointed to a 3-year term as a special advisor to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health in the USA Food and Drug Administration. In 2007, Charles Taylor co-founded HeartFlow, Inc. (Redwood City, USA), where he serves as the Chief Technology Officer and leads the technology development effort. Since 2011, he is a Consulting Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford University.In 2014, Charles Taylor was appointed as part-time professor of Computational Modelling Technology and its Clinical Application at Eindhoven University of Technology, department of Biomedical Engineering.
