From June 2003 to December 2005, he was a Research Fellow with the Cardiac MR Research Group, Guy’s Hospital, King’s College London, UK and since 2005, he is a Research Scientist at INRIA in the Asclepios team and a part-time Lecturer at King's College London, Division of Imaging Sciences, St Thomas' Hospital. His research interests include biomedical image processing and organ modelling. The integration of these two areas open up possibilities in clinical data analysis for diagnosis, and in pathology simulation for therapy planning. His main focus in the recent years have been the application of patient-specific models of the heart to cardiac pathologies.
