Research Interests

I am interested in modelling and understanding the developmental biology of cardiac development. My focus is on inherited cardiovascular diseases and discovering new therapeutic potentials using a systems physiology perspective. Using an integrated platform of in silico computational modelling of the genome to in vitro hIPSC models to genome editing technology all technologies are applied to define possibilities in personalised medicine.
