In July 2015, Professor Julia Schnabel took up the post as Chair of Computational Imaging at King’s College London, joining from the University of Oxford where she previously held the post of Professor of Engineering Science (Medical Imaging), and taking over Professor Schaeffter’s role as Director of the CDT.
Her current research interests are in nonlinear motion modelling, multi-modality imaging and quantitative imaging for applications in cancer imaging and neurosciences. Her focus is on developing mathematically principled methods for correcting complex types of motion, such as sliding organs, fetal movements, as well as motion artefacts in dynamic imaging (dPET, CTp, DCE-MRI and US). She also has an interest in machine learning techniques for disease characterisation and prediction of response to treatment, with the aim of rapid translation into clinical practice for patient stratification and improved treatment outcome.
Julia has attracted over £12m in funding over the past 8 years (£1m as PI), and has supervised 10 doctoral students to completion, who have been receiving a number of prestigious young investigator and doctoral thesis awards. She has co-/authored over 150 peer-reviewed publications, is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, a member of the Editorial Board of Medical Image Analysis, and has served on the programme committees of a number of international medical imaging conferences. She has been a Director of the 1st International Medical Imaging Summer School 2014, and has a keen interest in postgraduate training.
Julia Schnabel is the Director of the CDT and based at King's College London.
