Nick van Osta

Post doc

Nick van Osta graduated from the Technical University Eindhoven in 2017 with a master in Biomedical Engineering. He obtained his PhD at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (Maastricht University) under the supervision of Prof. Joost Lumens and Prof. Tammo Delhaas. During his PhD, he worked on important aspects of patient-specific modelling. He developed a modelling framework which can estimate tissue properties based on clinical deformation measurements in patients with arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy using the CircAdapt model – a model of the cardiovascular system.

As of November 2021, he continued his career as a platform scientist at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (Maastricht University) to further explore the applicability of the Digital Twin approach.
