I have joined the Biomedical Ultrasound Group at UCL in March 2015 as a post-doctoral researcher. My work focuses on the development of a front-end software for the open-source k-Wave toolbox (acoustics toolbox developed by our group) which will be used for planning surgery with HIFU. I am also interested in the effects of fiducial markers and brachytherapy seeds on the use of HIFU treatment for prostate cancer after failed external radiotherapy or brachytherapy.

Before joining UCL, I was awarded the EPSRC Dorctoral Prize Fellowship at the Bioengineering Department of Imperial College London. During the fellowship my research focused on the investigation of the circuit and device properties of the memristor, a new fundamental circuit element. In parallel, I was also working on the development of a software for planning dental surgery using C++, Qt and VTK.

I have obtained my PhD in 2013 from Imperial College London. My PhD research focused on the development of a mathematical framework for analysing circuits with memristors (thesis).

In 2009 I have obtained my MEng in Information Systems Engineering from the deportment of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Imperial College London.
