Personal statement:

My current research is focussed on understanding the pathologies underlying mechanical abnormalities observed in diseased hearts.

A strong theme in my research is the translation of these findings into new or improved clinical metrics for improving patient diagnosis and selection for treatments, most notably in the field of cardiac resynchronization therapy. Other active areas of interest include myocardial ischemia and infarction, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, and pulmonary arterial hypertension.

I use computer models to bridge the gap between clinical observations and fundamental physiological and mechanical principles, namely the CircAdapt model. Our department also uses this model to teach medical students and trainees the fundamentals of cardiac hemodynamics and mechanics. More information can be found at www.circadapt.org.
