My education has included degrees in Physics (B.Sc.), Electrical Engineering (M.Sc.) and Physiology (Ph.D.) from far away places like Halifax, Nova Scotia and Graz Austria. I came to Utah in 1990 as a post-doc, met Chris, and we have been causing trouble ever since.
I am an associate director of the CVRTI and have a research group there focussing on cardiac electrophysiology, the study of the heart's electrical activity. Within the SCI Institute, I am a member of the executive committee responsible for the biomedical research projects, especially the NIH NCRR Center. I also teach physiology and about bioelectric fields in Bioengineering, where I head the computational track in both the graduate and undergraduate programs.
