Health Data Science; Operational Research
Dr Thomas Monks is Associate Professor of Health Data Science at Exeter Medical School and IDSAI. He is a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute and an Honorary Senior Research Associate at the Clinical Operational Research Unit, UCL. His research interests are enhancing decision support in the NHS via computational methods, modelling stochastic health care delivery, and the real-time and data driven problems found in emergency care. His current research aims to combine computer simulation of health systems with machine learning, and to advance open science within his discipline. Prior to joining University of Exeter he led an NIHR funded data science team at the University of Southampton that worked directly with the NHS.
