Dr Pratt obtained his undergraduate degree from the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College. Continuing at the College, he then studied for his PhD in the Neural Systems Engineering Group at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
For over 13 years he subsequently worked as a quantitative analyst at a number of top-tier investment banks, with a particular focus on the vanilla and exotic fixed income derivatives businesses, and their associated pricing and risk management systems.
During the latter half of this period, he moved to a part-time working arrangement, enabling him to explore research opportunities at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Imperial College, on a voluntary basis.
This led ultimately to a change in career, and he was appointed Research Fellow at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College. From within the Department of Surgery and Cancer, he now undertakes a very active research programme in the field of image-guided surgery, and has successfully translated new technology and software into clinical practice in the operating theatre.
