Juan R. Cebral is a Professor with the Departments of BioEngineering and Mechanical Engineeringof the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia, USA. He was born in Plaza Huincul in the Patagonia Province of Neuquen, Argentina. He finished his undergraduate studies in Physics at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1991 and received his PhD in Computational Sciences and Informatics from George Mason University in 1996. He conducts research on image-based patient-specific computational modeling of cerebral blood flow and aneurysms in close collaboration with clinicians from Inova Fairfax Hospital and other institutions in the USA and around the world. He is a member of the Center for Computational Fluid Dynamics of the College of Sciences, GMU. He has co-authored over 100 journal papers, 10 book chapters, and over 174 conference papers. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, the Whitaker Foundation as well as industrial partners such as Philips Healthcare and Boston Scientific. He teaches courses in Fluid Mechanics, Biofluids, High Performance Computing and Computational Methods.
