Clinical Research Fellow
Computer Assisted Low-cost Point of care Ultrasound
I studied medicine at Oxford University and then completed Foundation Training in the West Midlands. Already sure I wanted a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology I worked overseas for a year in Pakistan and South Africa furthering my interests in Global Health, Obstetrics and Neonatology. In 2015 I returned to the West Midlands deanery to start Obstetrics & Gynaecology training and from January 2019 joined NDWRH to work with Aris Papageorghiou on the CALOPUS project.
I feel very privileged to be collaborating with engineers at IBME and our partners in THSTI, New Delhi as we develop more affordable, point of care, automated ultrasound technology for use in low and middle income countries. We are collecting 2D ultrasound videos and using convolutional neural networks to create algorithms that will facilitate obtaining a basic ultrasound without the need for a trained sonographer.
Where needed I also work on other collaborative global ultrasound studies within the department
