With my dual-background (MD and applied mathematics) and experience in cardiovascular magnetic resonance particularly for congenital heart diseases, I devoted myself to the translation of cardiovascular modeling into the clinic and advancing these methods into routine clinical application. This intrinsically multi-disciplinary goal can only be achieved in tight collaborations between teams of cardiovascular clinicians; mathematical and biomechanical modelers; and researchers in advanced data acquisition and processing. This explains my professional trajectory and major collaborations: MRI department of Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM Prague); French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (Inria); St Thomas’ Hospital, King’s College London; Department of Mathematics at Czech Technical University in Prague; and currently UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas.
