Noelia Grande Gutiérrez is a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering by courtesy. Her research interests lie at the intersection of computational engineering and cardiovascular medicine and involve the development and application of multiphysics models that contribute to support clinical decision making and provide novel insight into cardiovascular disease.

She graduated with a doctorate in mechanical engineering from Stanford University in 2019. She obtained a master’s in engineering sciences from UC San Diego, a master’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Barcelona and a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Technical University of Madrid. Grande Gutiérrez has been awarded fellowships from the American Heart Association and la Caixa Foundation.

She also served as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Diamond Lab, at the University of Pennsylvania, where she worked on developing a new multiscale computational framework that will allow investigating patient-specific thrombosis in coronary artery disease patients, from initial platelet deposition to artery occlusion.


Research Interests: bioengineering, computer-aided design (CAD), biomechanics, fluid mechanics, medical laboratory technology
