Mrs Nele Vandersickel

Ghent University, Ghent (Belgium)

Nele Vandersickel is an assistant professor at Ghent University, specializing in analyzing cardiac mapping data with an interdisciplinary approach. She leads a research team that has developed a powerful software package called Directed Graph Mapping (DGM). DGM utilizes network theory to detect reentry (macro, localized, and functional) - as well as focal activity in any type of dataset, be it computational, experimental, or clinical. Currently, DGM is optimized to analyze complex atrial tachycardia, but it is versatile enough to analyze any type of dataset. By using principles from topology, DGM is able to fully classify any type of atrial tachycardia. Her team validates their algorithms using computer simulations and a clinical database. If you are interested in working with Nele Vandersickel and her team, please contact her at nele.vandersickel@ugent.be. For more information on DGM, please visit their website at dgmapping.com.
