I am Senior Lecturer in Medical Image Computing and one of three academics leading the Biomedical Image Analysis Group. I am also Adviser - Medical Image Analysis at HeartFlow and I am leading the London-based HeartFlow-Imperial Research Team. I work as scientific adviser for Definiens and Kheiron Medical Technologies.

My research is at the intersection of medical image analysis and artificial intelligence aiming to build computational tools for improving diagnosis, therapy and intervention.
