Ahmad Warchafani El

I am currently an undergraduate student enrolled at the University of Michigan within the
College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA). My fascination with the intricate mechanics of the human heart has been a guiding force in my academic journey. My aspiration has always been to deeply immerse myself in the field of cardiology, and this eagerness has been solidified through invaluable experiences shadowing two cardiologists and a highly skilled cardiothoracic surgeon. I am actively engaged in research within the Cardio Biomechanics Lab, under Dr. David Nordsletten.

Research Interests

My research interests revolve around cardiac imaging and heart failure mechanisms. The origins of these interests can be traced to the experiences I gained during my summers working as a Medical Assistant and through clinical cases. My academic path has led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience, and my commitment to eventually matriculate into Medical School remains. My research undertakings, particularly within the field of cardiology and biomechanics, are shaping my academic journey to make a substantive contribution to the field of medicine in the future.
