Dr David Chieng is a consultant electrophysiologist with expertise in the management of heart rhythm disturbances, including cardiac arrhythmia (atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, SVT, ventricular tachycardia) ablation and cardiac device (pacemaker, defibrillator, cardiac resynchronization therapy) implantation.
He completed his PhD on novel ablation techniques/technologies in atrial fibrillation in 2023 with the support of the prestigious NHMRC, National Heart Foundation, and the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute Bright Sparks scholarships. He has been recognised nationally and internationally for his achievements in clinical research by being awarded an outstanding total of 18 young investigator awards thus far, including the prestigious awards of Eric N Prystowsky Fellows Clinical Research Award (2023), Paul Korner Medal for Outstanding PhD Achievements (2021), Young Investigator Award at the 14th and 15th Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society Congress (Suzhou 2021, Singapore 2022), Noel and Imelda Foster Prize for Cardiovascular Research (2022), and the Heart Failure Prize, Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand ASM (2022).
His research areas of interest include atrial fibrillation, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFrEF), and artificial intelligence. He presents regularly at national and international conferences and reviews papers for several international electrophysiology journals.
