Dr Mark Linton Trew


Profile Image
Senior Research Fellow


Mark Trew attained a Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Science in 1992 and a PhD Engineering Science in 1999, both from the University of Auckland. He is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.

From 1999 to 2001 Mark worked as a Research Engineer for Auckland UniServices on contract to PB Power Genzel NZ and Japan Petroleum Exploration Corporation, devising methods for predicting geothermal tracer chemical behaviour at high-temperatures. He joined the Bioengineering Group in 2001 and from 1999 to 2003 he also held part-time lecturing appointments in the Department of Engineering Science.

Research | Current

Mark constructs computer models and analysis tools for interpreting and understanding detailed images of cardiac tissue and cardiac electrical activity. His research interests include:

  • Cardiac electrical rhythm,
  • Tissue response to electric shock,
  • Computational techniques for simulating cardiac electrical behaviour,
  • Mathematical descriptions of cardiac tissue structure.
