Project Title: Computational detection of electrophysiological abnormalities in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Supervisors: Prof. Blanca Rodriguez, Dr. Ana Minchole


I am interested in using computational methods such as modelling, clustering, machine learning and simulations to analyse and interpret cardiovascular data for risk stratification, individual patient management and drug discovery. These methods can help dissect pehnotypic heterogeneity and understand the influence of various cardiac mechanisms in arrhythmogenesis and drug cardiotoxicity.

My DPhil project focused on the development of computational methods applied to electrocardiogram (ECG) data to identify different phenotypes in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, with differences in arrhythmic risk. Cardiac structural and electrophysiological mechanisms behind these ECG abnormalities were then investigated using computer simulations.

Undergraduate degree: Engineering, at the University Telecom ParisTech

Graduate studentship dates: October 2014- September 2017
