Dr. Christian Zemlin

Assistant Professor

Ph.D., Technical University Berlin

Dr. Zemlin received his B.S and M.S. degrees in Physics from the Technical University Berlin in 1994 and 1998 and his Ph.D. In Theoretical Physics from the Humboldt University in Berlin. He completed his postdoctoral research in Cardiac Electrophysiology at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY and became Research Assistant Professor there in 2006 before moving to ODU in 2011.

Dr. Zemlin's research focuses on the mechanisms of arrhythmias. He uses voltage-sensitive fluorescent probes to experimentally study cardiac activity large-scale parallel computer modeling to understand how arrhythmias are initiated and maintained. Other research interest include imaging of tissue structure using optical clearing and confocal microscopy, and the general theory of excitable media.
