Dr Marianne Schmid Daners
Dr Marianne Schmid Daners graduated from ETH Zurich as a mechanical engineer in 2006 (Dipl. Masch.-Ing. ETH). Under the supervision of Prof Guzzella, she completed her doctorate on the topic of “Adaptive Shunts for Cerebrospinal Fluid Control” at ETH Zurich’s Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control in 2012. Dr Schmid Daners heads the institute’s Biomedical Systems Group as a senior scientist. At the interdisciplinary interface of clinical research and engineering, her passion is the pathophysiological understanding of the dynamics of the intracranial and cardiovascular systems. Her research focuses on the modelling, control and testing of biological systems, as well as on the development and control of biomedical devices for the treatment of heart failure and hydrocephalus. From the ETH Zurich side of the BRCCH-supported CoVent project, she is the leading member of the project’s organising committee.
