I am a Lecturer in Health Data Sciences and an experienced computer vision researcher. My career has focused on the development of novel algorithms based on quantitative statistical techniques, primarily for clinical applications. I have particular interests in musculoskeletal radiology, neuroimaging, and translational research. I have published over 40 peer-reviewed papers in machine vision and medical image analysis, act as a reviewer and programme committee member for a number of national and international journals and conferences, am an area chair for the British Machine Vision Conference, and am a member of the organising committee for the MICCAI Musculoskeletal Imaging Workshop. I am also a member of, and acting Deputy Chair of, an NIHR Artificial Intelligence Health and Care Award Panel.
I have served on several University of Manchester (UoM) management committees and am currently the Impact Ambassador for my Division and a member of the Division Leadership Team. I have experience of teaching within higher education and hold a professional higher education teaching qualification in the form of Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. Finally, I have extensive experience of technology transfer to non-academic partners and have worked on collaborative projects with Optasia Medical Ltd., IRISYS Ltd., BT Group plc, Oxford Instruments plc and Cambridge Magnetic Refrigeration Ltd., and as the scientific advisor to the board of Quantima Ltd., a UoM spin-out company developing advanced diagnostics for Alzheimer's disease. Finally, I am a member of the Royal Osteoporosis Society’s Osteoporosis and Bone Health Academy, which is developing the Society’s national research strategy.
