? Cardiac anatomy and microstructure using histology and diffusion tensor MRI, and the structural underpinning of cardiac function.
? Ex vivo cardiac MRI, confocal microscopy, image analysis, preclinical models of cardiovascular disease, cardiac Langendorff preparations.
? Previously researched novel measures of diastolic function using echocardiography, and on the development of anti-thrombin nanoparticles for site-specific anticoagulation without increasing bleeding risk.
? Other interests include: analytics and optimization, having completed his Masters of Operations Research with a thesis titled "Optimal Electricity Distribution Tariff Design"
? Skills include: animal handling and surgery, MRI scanning, preclinical echocardiography, signal and image processing, programming and teaching.
? Investigated the relationship between cardiomyocyte branching and cellular location using extended volume confocal microscopy [Ref 1]
? Examined the diastolic pressure-volume relationship using both MRI and ex vivo techniques (Virtual Physiological Human Conference Abstract)
? The use of ACE inhibitors alters the myocardial collagen organization, reducing deposition between sheetlets [Ref 2]
? Published methods chapter detailing the formulation of anti-thrombin PFC nanoparticles [Ref 3]
