Giovanna Guidoboni

Associate Dean for Research

College of Engineering


Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Department of Mathematics


I graduated from the University of Ferrara (Italy) with PhD in mathematics and an MS in engineering of materials.

My research focuses on mathematical modeling and data science applied to engineering and life sciences.

I collaborate with many colleagues across campus, nationally and internationally in areas such as ocular blood flow and risk factors associated with ocular diseases; noninvasive health monitoring; and plant physiology.

My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Health and the European Commission.

I am a co-founder of Modeling and Artificial Intelligence in Ophthalmology (Kugler Publications, the Netherlands), an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal for which I serve as co-Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor.

I am the founder of Gspace LLC, a consulting company providing modeling and computational solutions for complex problems engineering and life sciences.

Before joining Mizzou in 2017, Guidoboni served on the faculty of the University of Houston (TX, USA), Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IN, USA) and the Université de Strasbourg (France).

Combining Physiology-Based Modeling and Evolutionary Algorithms for Personalized, Noninvasive Cardiovascular Assessment Based on Electrocardiography and Ballistocardiography

N.M. Marazzi, G. Guidoboni, M. Zaid, L. Sala, S. Ahmad, L. Despins, M. Popescu, M. Skubic, J. Keller.

This study proposes a novel approach to obtain personalized estimates of cardiovascular parameters by combining (i) electrocardiography and ballistocardiography for noninvasive cardiovascular monitoring, (ii) a physiology-based mathematical model for predicting personalized cardiovascular variables, and (iii) an evolutionary algorithm (EA) for searching optimal model parameters.
