Research Interests

I have a background in academic research as well as managing and executing the development of machine learning algorithms for healthcare. This provided me with exposure to the current challenges in deploying Artficial Intelligence in the real world. My focus lies in medical image analysis research that can ultimately benefit patient health safely, securely and fairly.

Specific research interests include: generative modelling for domain adaptation and verification, causality, uncertainty estimation, privacy.
