      Hi King Cannon.

      I use the laws of physics (more specifically, electromagnetism) to program a simulation of how the electrical waves that mkae the heart contract propagate through it.

      In diseases called arrhythmias, these waves can go back on themselves and lead to serious problems, so it is important to study them as best we can. My virtual heart also allows me to test treatments for these diseases without harming any animals or humans.

      Are you interested in Physics?
