Anna Mira is a Biomechanical Modelling Engineer at Caranx Medical. Anna graduated from INSA Rouen (France) with a master in Applied Mathematics in 2014. She then pursued her PhD at Universite Grenoble Alpes (France), in close collaboration with the Healthcare Department of General Electric. Her thesis focused on breast tissues modelling for the evaluation of the compression and discomfort perception in mammography.
Anna continued her work on soft tissues modelling at the University of Auckland (New-Zealand) as a postdoctoral research associate in 2018. She developed an advanced numerical framework to assist clinicians in their daily routines in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. She later joined King’s College London (UK), this time focusing on statistical shape modelling to investigate shape pattern predictive of maladaptive cardiac function in patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.
Throughout her career, Anna has been focusing on applying mathematics and computer science techniques to improve the healthcare experience of both patients and clinicians. Her research interests include medical imaging, soft-tissue modelling, biomechanics, computer-assisted surgery and clinical translation of automated systems.
