João Domingos


João DomingosResearch

I am a DPhil candidate at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Oxford, and I am supervised by Dr. Paul Leeson and Prof. J. Alison Noble. My doctoral research focuses on providing cardiologists with novel tools for utilizing 4D echocardiography data in clinical practice in order to improve workflow and accuracy of disease diagnosis. Specifically, I am interested in the design of computer vision and machine learning strategies to perform real time automated 4D analysis of echocardiography volumes. 

I am also involved in low-cost mHealth projects for developing countries and currently working with the Oxford Centre for Affordable Healthcare Technologies (O×CAHT).
