An Engineer at the Heart

Dominik Obrist, Head of the Cardiovascular Engineering Lab at ARTORG, has a strong affinity for computers and working with supercomputers has become his passion. His research focusses on simulating flows in the human body, particularly the cardiovascular system. Supercomputing resources at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) are essential to his research. He has been interviewed by Sabine Ulmer from CSCS on his career path, his motivation and his special role as engineer within a medical faculty.
