Silvia Hervás is a doctoral student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Zaragoza. Her research interests focus on cell mechanics and developing computational models in cancer diseases. She has developed a finite-element based model for confined cell migration during the cancer extravasation process. Also, she has proposed an inverse methodology to recover cell traction forces directly from a traction force microscopy experimental essay. Currently, she is working on patient-specificcomputational models for tumour cluster growth for two paediatric cancers.
