FoU - Petter Holmlund

I work as a postdoc in the Umeå Hydrocephalus Research Group. My areas of interest are Biomedical Engineering research focusing on modeling and measurement of cerebrospinal fluid dynamics, with applications towards neuroscience. Currently, I am working on projects studying the fluid dynamic interactions between the eye and brain with respect to gravitational/postural effects, and investigations of the Glymphatic system, a suggested clearance system for the brain. The projects include methods such as pressure measurements, MRI and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). 

In 2019 I received my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Radiation Sciences, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden. Before that, I graduated as a Master of Science in Engineering Physics at Umeå University in 2014. A list of my publications, including my PhD thesis, can be found at my Umeå University webpage (see the link below).
