Rob Macleod, PhD
Investigator, Nora Eccles Harrison CVRTI
Associate Director, Scientific Computing, and Imaging Institute
Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Medicine
Dr. MacLeod was trained in physics, electrical engineering, and physiology & biophysics and is a full professor of Biomedical Engineering and Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Utah. He is a co-founder and Associate Director of the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute and has held a similar position at the Nora Eccles Harrison Cardiovascular Research and Training Institute (CVRTI). He also co-founded the Consortium for ECG Imaging. He is Vice Chair and Director of the Undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering. His research interests include computational electrocardiography with special interest in simulating bioelectric fields, e.g., from cardiac defibrillation and neuromodulation, and exploring new approaches for electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI). He also uses experimental investigation and clinical approaches to improve management of ventricular and atrial arrhythmias and acute myocardial ischemia. For his research, he uses a broad range of techniques including scientific computing, imaging, image and signal processing, and visualization and well as experimental approaches.
