Biography

I​ ​completed​ ​my​ ​Bachelors​ ​in​ ​Biomedical​ ​Engineering​ ​at​ ​King's​ ​College​ ​London​ ​in​ ​2015,​ ​during which​ ​time​ ​I​ ​worked​ ​on​ ​respiratory​ ​motion​ ​models​ ​for​ ​image-guided​ ​interventions.​ ​The​ ​following year,​ ​I​ ​completed​ ​a​ ​12-month​ ​placement​ ​at​ ​Siemens​ ​Healthcare​ ​in​ ​Germany​ ​where​ ​I​ ​focused my​ ​research​ ​on​ ​image​ ​denoising​ ​and​ ​contrast​ ​enhancement​ ​techniques​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​device visibility​ ​in​ ​X-ray​ ​fluoroscopy​ ​sequences.​ ​I​ ​also​ ​acquired​ ​my​ ​MSc​ ​in​ ​Machine​ ​Learning​ ​at Imperial​ ​College​ ​London​ ​in​ ​2017.​ ​There,​ ​I​ ​had​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​work​ ​on​ ​a​ ​self-proposed project​ ​in​ ​tensor​ ​decompositions​ ​for​ ​large-scale​ ​data.​ ​

Now,​ ​I​ ​am​ ​pursuing​ ​a​ ​CDT​ ​in​ ​medical imaging​ ​with​ ​the​ ​hopes​ ​of​ ​applying​ ​statistical​ ​models​ ​of​ ​anatomy​ ​and​ ​function​ ​that​ ​automatically extract​ ​diagnostic​ ​and​ ​prognostic​ ​biomarkers​ ​from​ ​echocardiographic​ ​sequences.
