Research Interests:

The mission of Dr. Trayanova's Computational Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory is to conduct research, by developing cutting-edge computational tools and simulation-experiment approaches, to advance the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that underly rhythm disorders in the heart and to uncover better strategies for prevention and treatment of these disorders.
