Eloise is the UK Manager of DIH-HERO, a European Digital Innovation Hub for Healthcare Robotics that aims to foster innovation in robotic healthcare products by connecting SMEs with service providers, including universities, hospitals, business development units, manufacturers, regulators and policy makers. A Horizon 2020 grant, this hub kicked off in 2019 and provides cascade funding over the next four years for cross border partnerships between SMEs and service providers working in healthcare robotics. 

At Imperial, she is also the is the manager of the Robotics Forum - a network that connects all academics undertaking robotics related research at the university in order to have a cohesive strategy and approach to robotics representation at Imperial. Eloise is a part-time PhD candidate in the Mechatronics in Medicine Laboratory where her research focuses on intuitive human-machine interfaces for neurosurgery, specifically part of the EDEN2020 project for drug delivery to brain tumours via a flexible, bio-inspired and steerable catheter. 


Eloise holds a combined BSc in Nanoscience and Technology/BEng in Mechatronics (Space) Engineering from the University of Sydney, Australia (2010) and a MSc in Advanced Robotics from Warsaw University of Technology, Poland and Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France (2014). She has experience working as a systems engineer in the Australian space industry (2011 – 2012) and at the European Space Agency (ESA) in the Netherlands (2014 – 2016). In her role as a Telerobotics Engineer within the Robotics and Automation section of ESA, she worked on the METERON project, developing technologies and robotic systems to assess the ability of astronauts on the International Space Station to control robots on the ground, whilst mitigating for signal losses and time delay.
