Curriculum Vitae

CHRISTINA HAGEN (née KLUCK) was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1989. She received her M.Sc. in Medical Engineering Science in 2014 from the University of Lübeck, Germany. In 2013/2014, she wrote her master thesis at the Institute of Medical Engineering, University of Lübeck, about airflow simulation in the human upper airways. Since 01/2014 she is a student of the Graduate School for Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences and a research assistant at the Institute of Medical Engineering. There she continues her work in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

The project is financially supported by the TANDEM II project (grant no. 122 13 002).
