Dr Sander Land
Dr Sander Land holds a D.Phil. in Computer Science from the University of Oxford. Previously, he was awarded the M&I Informatie Scriptieprijs for best Computer Science thesis in the Netherlands by the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities.
His main research interest is in developing biophysically detailed models of cardiac contraction and electromechanics, quantitatively linking cellular experimental data and whole-organ function for a better understanding of cardiac physiology, and developing numerical methods for more efficient electromechanical simulations. He is currently working with Professor Jon Kentish on developing a contraction model of human cardiomyocytes, increasing the predictive power of electromechanical models for use with human clinical data.
