Farhad is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Computational Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University. He obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and his BSc with a double major in Physics and Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. Farhad’s research interests and skills span across areas of cardiovascular imaging as well computational modeling and electrophysiology of the heart. In particular, he has developed high-resolution Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Late Gadolinium Enhancement MRI techniques to investigate the microstructural organization of intact hearts in health and disease.
In the Computational Cardiology Laboratory, he is employing high-resolution imaging data in the construction of structurally-accurate computational models of the whole heart. His current research focuses on understanding the role of atrial myofiber architecture as well as ventricular myocardial infarction in the electrical activity and the generation of rhythm disorders in the heart, a better knowledge of which could lead to improved therapies for millions of patients suffering from cardiac arrhythmia.
