At undergraduate level I read Engineering at the University of Cambridge, specialising in information engineering and bioengineering. My research has so far been relatively broadly based, including summer projects in electronics as well as optics, and a Master's project in image processing in cheese. I seek to apply rigorous computational analysis to medical images and thus obtain more useful information out of them.
