Research Interests

I have over 15 years of experience in the fields of cardiovascular engineering, cardiac electrophysiology, and medical devices. I have been interested in the mechanism of atrial fibrillation and signal processing. I have researched two canine models (sterile pericarditis and vagal nerve stimulation atrial fibrillation) and human persistent or postoperative atrial fibrillation to understand the mechanism of atrial fibrillation. I have developed, improved, and applied several signal processing analysis algorithms in both time and frequency domains to characterize atrial electrograms of atrial fibrillation during real-time data acquisition. I have applied these analysis algorithms to clinical studies. Using high density mapping with these algorithms, we can understand the mechanism of atrial fibrillation and apply real-time analysis algorithms to improve surgical or catheter ablation therapies. More recently, I have partnered with a manufacturing company for developing a smart mapping catheter (catheter + analysis algorithm).
