Dr Steven Niederer

Biographical details

Dr. Steven Niederer completed his undergraduate degree in Engineering Science at the University of Auckland and received his DPhil in computer science from the University of Oxford in 2008. Dr Niederer was a UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Life Sciences Interface Early Career Fellow at Oxford prior to moving to Kings’ College London where he is currently a senior lecturer in the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering. 

Research interests

Dr Niederer’s research aims to combine experimental and clinical data with biophysical computational models to better understand cardiac physiology and pathology to better inform patient selection, treatment and therapy optimisation. This work currently focuses on understanding the cellular and tissue scale physiology that underpin the short and long term response to pacemakers in patients, developing detailed biophysical models of the rat and mouse heart linking subcellular physiology to whole organ function, developing simulations of atria electrophysiology and mechanics to investigate atrial fibrillation and using models of cardiac myocytes to investigate cardiotoxicity.
