Amr Al Abed is a Senior Research Associate with the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. I work at the junction of computational modelling, biomedical instrumentation and cardiac and neural electrophysiology. I have extensive expertise in biocomputational simulations with the experimental skills essential for model validation and a focus on translation, applying these models to design medical devices for cardiac bionics, gene therapy, and brain-machine interfaces.
Optical-electrodes 'optrodes': We use light to sense electrophysiology signals. Development of rigid and flexible multi-optrode arrays and associated photodectection and acquisition systems for cardiac rhythm mapping and neural interfacing.
Technology for gene delivery: Computational simulation and development of devices for gene electrotransfer.
Computational cardiology: 3D multiphysics simulations of the heart to inform device development and planning of clinical procedures.
Cardiac physiome: Mathematical modelling of ion channels to tissue electrophysiology, and large-scale parameter optimisation of models to fit experimental recordings.
