My research focuses on the nonlinear dynamics of the heart. I have primarily worked on theory, experiments and clinical trials that investigate how electrical and chemical changes in cardiac tissue promote more complex irregular rhythms in the heart. I am also interested in control algorithms, data acquisition/ processing techniques, and various statistical analyses that promote a variety research projects.  Recently, I have also become interested in science and math education.
