Original Research: A Framework for Image-Based Modeling of Acute Myocardial Ischemia Using Intramurally Recorded Extracellular Potentials

My co-authored research article titled – A Framework for Image-Based Modeling of Acute Myocardial Ischemia Using Intramurally Recorded Extracellular Potentials was published in the peer review journal – Annals of Biomedical Engineering. The article is available in print, in the September 2018 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the manuscript documents a simulation framework for incorporating subject-specific, geometric models and experimental results that are highly resolved in space and time into computational models. This framework provides a means to advance the understanding of the underlying mechanisms of ischemic disease while simultaneously putting in place the computational infrastructure necessary to study and improve ischemia models aimed at reducing diagnostic errors in the clinic.

Original Research – RHYTHM: An Open Source Imaging Toolkit for Cardiac Panoramic Optical Mapping


My co-authored research article titled – RHYTHM: An Open Source Imaging Toolkit for Cardiac Panoramic Optical Mapping was published in the peer review journal – Nature Scientific Reports. The article is available in print, in the February 2018 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the manuscript documents an open source toolkit for building panoramic optical mapping systems which includes the 3D printing of perfusion and imaging hardware, as well as software for data processing and analysis. The article can be accessed here

Editorial – Ventricular Fibrillation: Rotors or Foci? Both!

My co-authored editorial titled – Ventricular Fibrillation: Rotors or Foci? Both! was accepted for published in the peer review journal – Circulation. Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology. The article is available in print, in the December 2017 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the editorial provides a brief commentary on the current understanding of mechanisms underlying ventricular arrhythmias. The editorial can be accessed here

Gordon Research Conference

Attended the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) held at the Marriott Hotel (Ventura, California) on the dates February 4-10th.  The conference is held every 2 years and is one of the top conferences in the field of cardiac electrophysiology.

The major theme for this year’s conference was cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms. I got the opportunity to present a poster on my original research titled -: Reentrant Volume Index (RVI) Can Predict Arrhythmia Vulnerability in the Human Left Ventricle.

This was my first time attending the conference and I got an opportunity to meet and network with great investigators (established as well as new and upcoming). It was a wonderful experience and I plan to attend the next one in 2019 to be held in Italy 🙂
