Research

My research interests include:

  • applying machine (deep) learning to healthcare applications
  • modelling/simulation of cardiac activity
  • filtering noisy data (Kalman filters, blind source separation, etc)
  • design and implementation of clinical trials
  • statistical analysis of data
