Position: Research Fellow


I am an Imaging Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen for the iCAIRD programme. iCAIRD (Industrial Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research in Digital Diagnostics) is a Scotland-wide project which aims to lower entry barriers for small and medium enterprises to evaluate and develop artificial intelligence tools for healthcare using NHS data. My role involves supporting the iCAIRD breast screening project and applying statistical methods to evaluate AI tools using NHS data. I previously obtained a PhD in Medical Imaging and an MSc in Medical Physics at the University of Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre.
