  • Research Interests

    Dr. Zemlin's research focuses on the mechanisms of arrhythmias. He uses voltage-sensitive fluorescent probes to experimentally study cardiac activity large-scale parallel computer modeling to understand how arrhythmias are initiated and maintained. Other research interest include imaging of tissue structure using optical clearing and confocal microscopy, and the general theory of excitable media.
