Current Research and Scholarly Interests The most common problem with people's heartbeat is when it becomes irregular, which
is called atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is a problem as it can lead to strokes and heart
attacks. It is difficult to cure, with many tablets required that aren't that
effective. A new way of picking where to ablate has focussed on rotors - areas where the electricity spins around like a hurricane. At Stanford, I am working with the developer of this technique to improve understanding of how and why they occur.
