Biography

My main interests are the application of modelling and machine learning to understanding and improving clinical pathways. Work, for example, includes modelling of the acute stroke pathway, with machine learning being used to understand and predict clinical decision making, allowing us to ask questions such as “what treatment would this patient receive if they went to another hospital?”.

I also have a general interest in how ‘deep reinforcement learning’ may be applied to healthcare. Can, for example, the Deep Mind agents that learned to play Go and Chess learn how to manage escalation/de-escalation policies in a hospital?
