Assistant Research Professor
Patrick is an Assistant Research Professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, with appointments in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute for Computational Medicine. He is a long-standing member of the Computational Cardiology Lab. He completed his PhD in Biomedical Engineering (2011) and BSc in Computer Engineering (2005), both at the University of Calgary. He is a licensed professional engineer in Canada (PEng, 2013) and a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society (FHRS, 2017).
While working in the lab, he has focused on projects concerning the exploration of optogenetics as a novel means of manipulating cardiac electrophysiology, the use of image-based models to develop personalized treatment plans for complex atrial ablation procedures, and the role of the heart's specialized conduction system in perpetuating arrhythmia. Patrick is proud to work in collaboration with world-class scientists and clinicians, both within the lab and at other facilities including the University of Bordeaux, George Washington University, Stanford University, and the University of Bonn, to name a few.
