Biography

Dr. Selim Bozkurt studied Mechanical Engineering at Eskisehir Osmangazi University in Turkey. He obtained his master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yeditepe University where he also worked as a research assistant in a project aiming to design, analyse and prototype production of a miniature implantable rotary blood pump. Then, he started his PhD research at the department of Biomedical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands and did research on arterial pulsatility and aortic valve function to evaluate continuous flow left ventricular assist device support. In his PhD study, Dr. Bozkurt transformed the commonly used steady flow LVAD into a dynamic flow LVAD, thus showing the beneficial effect of pulsatile support over steady flow support on aortic valve behaviour and perfusion rates using in-silico, in-vitro and ex-vivo techniques. After receiving his PhD degree in 2014, Dr. Bozkurt joined the Mechanical Engineering department of UCL where he worked as a research associate and developed the metallic wireframe of a novel bi-leaflet transcatheter mitral valve. Currently, he works at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science of UCL and Great Ormond Street Hospital aiming to develop a new device for correction of unicoronal craniosynostosis in paediatric patients.
