Welcome at my academic page! This website is dedicated to the research I'm performing in the field of "computational electrocardiography", or, in more common terms, how to use mathematics in visualizing important electrical properties of the human heart. Main application of this work is in the medical field, and by means of this website, I hope to give you some insight in the possibilities and limitations that are generated by computational electrocardiography. The specific subject I'm focusing on during my PhD research is "noninvasive electrocardiographic imaging", in which we try to visualize electrical properties of a patients heart in high anatomical and electrical detail.
