My specific research interests include: ECG sensing with the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, the impact of age, frailty and co-morbidities on implantable defibrillator efficacy, atrial fibrillation, risk prediction modelling and psychological aspects of pain during cardiac implantable device operations.
