About me

  • Dr. Philip Sarajlic received his MD degree from the Karolinska Institute. He
    is currently serving as a research scientist in the translational cardiology
    team at the Department of Medicine at Karolinska University Hospital. His
    main area of interest is computational cardiology, with a primary focus on
    research and development of bioinformatics and artificial intelligence
    solutions in medical settings. In addition, he is managing intercontinental
    projects in applied machine learning in the fields of heart failure
    phenotyping, identification of cardiovascular risk factors, and detection of
    intervention side effects. As a frequently invited reviewer of manuscript
    submissions to high-impact cardiovascular journals, he stays up-to-date with
    recent developments and contributes to quality assurance in the area.
