Tim de Coster, PhD

Tim de Coster is specialized in mathematical modeling and computational methods, with a special interest in the biophysics underling cardiac arrhythmias.

Tim de Coster, PhD

After obtaining his Master's degree in Theoretical Physics at KU Leuven (Belgium), he started his PhD training in the cardiac interdisciplinary field at the Physics department at UGent (Belgium) and the Biomedical Sciences department at KU Leuven (Belgium) under the supervision of Sasha Panfilov, Piet Claus and Karin Sipido. For his thesis, he investigated the influence of adipose tissue into the genesis of cardiac arrhythmias, both looking at structural and electrical changes to the heart.

He joined the Laboratory of Experimental Cardiology in the fall of 2018 to delve deeper into the concept and realisation of biological cardiac defibrillation. These studies are supported by the ERC.
