I am Senior Lecturer in Medical Image Computing at Imperial College London and a member of the Biomedical Image Analysis Group. I am also the Champion for Public Engagement in the Department of Computing.

My research is in the area of biomedical image computing and medical computer vision with a focus on applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate image analysis.

I am teaching Algorithms and Medical Image Computing, coordinate the HiPEDS Group Projects, and lead the stream 3 of the Medical Imaging CDT.
