Dr David Nickerson
University of Auckland
Auckland Bioengineering Institute
David is a Senior Research Fellow at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute where he leads renal modelling and model sharing projects. His research interests are in computational physiology and associated numerical simulation methods with a specific interest in cardiac and renal physiology and the role of multiscale and multiphysics computational modelling in improving our understanding of, and identifying potential therapies for, cardiovascular disease. David also leads projects on the development and implementation of community standards, model representation languages and databases for storing, sharing and reusing physiological models, in particular through theCellML and Physiome/Virtual Physiological Human Projects. He is also involved in the development of the software infrastructure and numerical simulation tools required to support these projects.
