I aim to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. My group’s current focus is on genetic conditions which predispose to sudden death. We aim to use what we learn from these conditions to better understand common conditions including atrial fibrillation. We use a combination of experimental work and computer modelling to fully understand the complex mechanisms underlying electrical activity in the heart in health and disease.
