Victor Gonçalves Marques
Victor G. Marques has a B.Sc. / M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from the Federal University of ABC (Brazil). His Master’s work, financed by a grant from the São Paulo Research Foundation, was focused on the characterization of atrial arrhythmias, especially atrial fibrillation, from a non-invasive perspective. Currently, he is enrolled as a Ph.D. student at Maastricht University, in the Netherlands, as part of the Personalize AF project, where he works with computer modeling of the heart and signal processing of atrial fibrillation. His main research interests are applying computational techniques to help enlighten the mechanisms driving cardiac arrhythmias, improving their diagnosis, and, eventually, leading to better therapeutic strategies
Goals and expectations in PersonalizeAF:
I am very excited to be a part of the PersonalizeAF project, which joins the efforts of some of the most relevant researchers and institutes in the field towards a common goal to improve the treatment of atrial fibrillation.
I expect to contribute to this goal with my project, improving the current knowledge of the arrhythmia and ablation strategies by using computer models and signal analysis. I also hope to develop myself personally and professionally during my Ph.D., enabling me to continue in this career path after the conclusion of the project and to continue my contributions to the scientific community.
