Dr Abdallah Hasaballa
BE HTI Egypt, MESc Univ. of Malaysia
Abdallah obtained his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering in 2011 from the Higher Technological Institute, Egypt, and his Master of Engineering Science from the University of Malaya in 2014. For his master's thesis, Abdallah developed a three-dimensional finite element model of the human left ventricle based on an accurate description of both muscle fiber orientation and material characteristics. The model was used to study the effects of myocardial fiber architecture on the left ventricle mechanics.
Since July 2015, Abdallah has been working towards a PhD degree at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.

Linking myocardial mechanics and microstructural remodelling during heart failure
Heart Failure (HF) is a significant and increasing public health problem worldwide. Despite the wide variety of medical research undertaken and bioengineering treatment strategies developed over the last half century, HF remains a serious disease which threatens human longevity.
HF involves an extensive remodelling of the microstructural of myocardial tissue. The role of of myocardial structure remodelling in the development of HF is poorly understood.
The primary goal of this research is to develop a constitutive model able to link between the microstructure and functional remodelling in the cardiac muscle during the progression of HF.
