Payam Barnaghi is Chair in Machine Intelligence Applied to Medicine and Deputy Head of Division of Neurology in the Department of Brain Sciences at Imperial College London. He is a Principal Investigator and Programme Lead for Machine Intelligence in the Care Research and Technology Centre at the UK Dementia Research Institute. He is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Big Data and vice-chair of the IEEE SIG on Big Data Intelligent Networking. He is also a Visiting Professor at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health at University College London.
His main research goal is to develop AI and machine learning solutions for healthcare and create affordable and scalable digital systems that can be applied across a range of health conditions. He works on machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), semantic computing, adaptive algorithms and computational neuroscience to solve problems and develop new technologies for future healthcare systems.
