Research Fellow


Jagir Hussan has an engineering degree from the Coimbatore Institute of Technology, India and a PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Prior to his PhD studies, he worked for the IBM Corporation, specialising in high performance computing solutions for biology, finance and multimedia intelligence. His PhD was in cardiac electrophysiology, specifically focused towards understanding the role of ion-channels in cardiac arrhythmias using first principles.

His research interests are in non-equilibrium thermodynamics, quasi-conformal analysis, mechanobiology, biological growth, tissue remodelling and their applications to clinically significant problems.

Research | Current

Integrated Cardiovascular Project for the International Space Station
Reconstruction of the human Left ventricular geometry, dynamics and its remodelling in microgravity. This project is a collaboration with the Cleveland clinic foundation and National Space Biomedical Research Institute, U.S.A.

How does the heart grow?
Explicating the interactions between gene expression and biomechanics during cardiac development. This project is funded by the New Zealand Marsden fund.
