Guest Lecture Abstract
Prof. Lisa Prahl Wittberg (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm)

The core of Prof. Prahl Wittberg’s research is fluid dynamics, with a focus on complex fluids
commonly found in the human body (such as blood) and aimed at enhancing the
physical understanding of flow physics in order to enable better treatment in different clinical
applications such treatment with ECMO, respirators and dialysis. Her research
group seeks to develop tools and methods to advance the understanding of underlying
processes, such as modelling and early detection of the
development of thromboembolic pathologies in clinical situations. This work is of both
numerical and experimental character and is carried out in close collaboration with clinical
