Dr. Toni Lassila

Dr Toni Lassila received his doctorate in mathematics from Aalto University in 2010. He has previously worked at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland. He joined CISTIB in August 2014 to work on image-based mathematical modelling in biomedical engineering problems. These include understanding the degeneration of brain tissue leading to dementia, and modelling the behaviour of cardiac electromechanics in a pathological heart.Dr Toni Lassila received his doctorate in mathematics from Aalto University in 2010.

Research Interests 

His research interests fall largely in the area of numerical methods for partial differential equations and cover various topics such as shape optimisation and shape sensitivity analysis, model reduction of parameterised nonlinear partial differential equations, and computational modelling of the cardiovascular system.
