My PhD project focusses on cardiac pressure estimation using advanced ultrasound imaging technologies. The aim is to equip the cardiologist with non-invasive and accurate measurements of cardiac pressure to aid disease diagnosis and risk stratification.
I completed my BSc in Physiology at King’s College London, before moving on to a Research Assistant role at the University of Oxford. In Oxford, I was able to apply my knowledge of physiology in a clinical research setting, while also developing my interest and skills in the field of medical imaging.
