Research line

Modeling and simulation of cardiac electrical activity in healthy and diseased hearts, including:

  1. Investigation of atrial arrhythmias: atrial activation and manifestations on electrogram (EGM) and electrocardiogram (ECG) signals
  2. Investigation of ventricular arrhythmias: mechanisms underlying the onset of reentrant arrhythmias and assessment of pro-arrhythmic risk based on ECG biomarkers
  3. Dynamic modeling of myocardial ischemia
  4. Stochastic modeling of ionic current fluctuations in ventricular cells: contribution to temporal and spatial repolarization variability.
