My research focus is to understand the mechanism of sudden cardiac arrest using interdisciplinary tools from complexity science, computational neuroscience, and artificial intelligence. In this talk I will discuss how the interdisciplinary approach combining clinical and simulation data provides a new framework to understand this nagging clinical problem.
