Aurore Lyon

Post doc

Dr Aurore Lyon graduated from Telecom ParisTech Engineering School in Paris (France) with a Master in Engineering, and from the University of Oxford (UK) with a Master in Computer Science. She obtained her PhD at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford, working in the Computational Cardiovascular Science group. Her PhD focussed on using computational techniques for analysis, modelling and simulation of ECG signals for patient risk stratification in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Since April 2018, she has been working at Maastricht University. Her current research focusses on cardiac electromechanics and the coupling from cellular electrophysiology to whole-heart mechanics and hemodynamics. Specific projects of research include electromechanical modelling, effect of exercise on cardiac pathologies such as ARVC or deformation imaging analysis in atrial fibrillation patients. Her interests lie in combining computer simulations with clinical data to better understand cardiac physiology (e.g. exercise) or disease mechanisms (e.g. arrhythmia).
