Dr David Nordsletten
Dr David Nordsletten is a Reader in Cardiovascular Biomechanics at King’s College London. His principal emphasis in his research team is the integration of biomechanical modeling and advanced numerical techniques with clinical imaging. This merger of disparate – yet mutually complementary – fields provides a new paradigm for analyzing and assessing health and disease, moving toward personalized patient care. Through the development of patient-specific mathematical models, they construct novel analysis tools to improve diagnosis, treatment and therapy planning in the heart. A key area of emphasis in their lab is the biomechanics of both healthy and failing hearts. Using biomechanical analysis software, they aim to characterize alterations in cardiac structure and function in disease.
