Research Interests

My research concentrates on the prediction of hypoglycemic episodes and arrhythmia in patients with Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). It is known, that patients, belonging to this high risk population, exhibit an increased risk of cardiac arrhythmia and even sudden cardiac death, which might be driven by periods of low blood glucose level, so-called hypoglycemia. Although the link between hypoglycemic events and changes in ECG measurements has been established, little is known about the functional relationship that causes it.
