Larissa Hütter graduated 2019 from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany. For her Bachelor’s project she stayed at the Centre of Bioengineering at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand to work on a compliant in-vitro model of the aortic arch. In her Master studies she did an exchange semester at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), Spain. Alongside her studies at KIT, she worked at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics where she undertook extensive research on an interdisciplinary project focused on an integrated heart model, which couples fluid mechanics, elastomechanics and electrophysiology. Thereby, she did finite element modelling, as well as the simulation of ion concentrations in heart cells.
Currently, Larissa is a PhD student at the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia, Barcelona, with the topic ‘Multiscale modelling of organic electronic biosensor response’ under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Gomila in the Nanoscale Bioelectrical Characterization group of the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC).
