Daniel Hornung

I work on the characterization and measurement of cardiac structures such as blood vessels and endocardial walls. Another aspect of my work is the interaction between these structures and the electrical activity of the heart muscle. The studied structures play an important role in pathological patterns like tachycardia and cardiac fibrillation, but may also serve as a means to terminate these potentially life threatening conditions.

To study new therapy opportunities by low-energy pacing, I develop and run computer simulations with a diversity of models, in 2D and 3D.
