Edward J. Ciaccio PhD, is senior research scientist in the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology and the Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University, and honorary principal research fellow in the Department of Medicine, Imperial College, London. His work has received a paper of the year award from Heart Rhythm journal 2008, and he has been keynote speaker at the International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology (2013-2015) and Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare 2014. He was faculty speaker at the 1st Annual International Symposium on Ventricular Arrhythmias 2006, at Atrial Signals 2015, and at the 13th Annual Congress of the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society 2017. He has published approximately 100 peer-reviewed articles in the areas of biomedical signal processing for analysis of electrograms in heart arrhythmia, and in image processing for analysis of the presence of villous atrophy and other pathology in the small intetinal mucosa of celiac disease patients. In computational biology, Dr. Ciaccio has developed a biophysical model of activation wavefront propagation for ventricular tachycardia and for atrial fibrillation. He is editor-in-chief of the journals Computers in Biology and Medicine, and Informatics in Medicine Unlocked.
