Personal profile

Research profile

Peter Bovendeerd is an assistant professor at the department of Biomedical Engineering, research group Cardiovascular Biomechanics. His research focuses on improving the interpretation of clinical patient data by using mathematical models. The models are based on fundamental physical and physiological principles, and can be used to predict how (pathologic) tissue or organ properties are manifested in patient data. When used in an inverse mode, the models provide a tool to transform these patient data back into an estimate of the underlying pathology. This model assisted diagnosis may be complemented by model assisted treatment selection and long-term prognosis.

Application areas include Cardiac Electromechanics and Perioperative Monitoring, both in collaboration with the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven. Application in Perinatal Monitoring is pursued in collaboration with the Máxima Medical Center in Veldhoven.

Academic background

Peter Bovendeerd studied Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), where he obtained his MSc degree in 1985 with the distinction cum laude. In 1985 and 1986, he was employed at Philips Industrial & Electro Acoustic Systems. In 1986, he started PhD research at Maastricht University where he obtained his PhD in 1990 for his numerical and experimental study of the mechanical behavior of the left ventricle, both normal and ischemic. He then returned to Eindhoven, where he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In 2002, he moved to the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
