His research is focussed on the electrical signals that control the rhythm of the heartbeat and understanding the molecular basis of disorders of heart rhythm and sudden cardiac death. His team uses a range of molecular, biophysical and computer modelling techniques to analyse arrhythmia substrates. His team has a particular interest in inherited arrhythmia syndromes and drug-induced arrhythmias.
