These interests range from catheter ablation for complex arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, to fundamental issues related to the basic mechanisms of various types of heart rhythm disorders, and the use of imaging in the electrophysiology laboratory to guide ablation procedures and device implantation. He is involved in several multicenter clinical trials that are evaluating novel ablation tools and implantable devices, including a totally subcutanous implantable defibrillator. He has coauthored over 250 scientific papers and is on the editorial board of several high-impact medical journals.[Shorten text]
