About

Short Bio

I joined the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at University College London (UCL) in February of 2013. I am currently supported by an Early Career Fellowship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). My research sits at the interface between physical acoustics, biomedical ultrasound, numerical methods, and high performance computing. In particular, I am interested in developing fast and accurate models of how ultrasound waves travel through the human body. This involves studying many interesting acoustic phenomena from a physical perspective, and then devising novel ways in which these can be captured by a numerical model. Much of my work has been released as an open-source acoustics toolbox for MATLAB called k-Wave. These models have important applications in both ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging, and dosimetry and treatment planning for ultrasound therapy. I work with a multidisciplinary team, and collaborate with researchers from a range of backgrounds, including mathematics, physics, computer science, radiology, haematology, oncology, and neurology. I currently teach the acoustics of ultrasound as part of the Department’s undergraduate and masters courses. I am also the admissions tutor for the Department’s Biomedical Engineering degrees.
