Omar Al-Kadi

Postdoctoral research fellow; DPhil, MSc, BSc

Omar Al-KadiI am a postdoctoral researcher working on biomedical image analysis and segmentation of liver tumours in the biomedical image analysis research group. My research interests include image processing (texture analysis, image classification, and image segmentation), computer vision, and pattern recognition.

The collaborative research project I am working on aims to develop and improve 3D Ultrasound-based drug delivery strategies that are capable of targeting both primary and metastatic liver tumours over a single course of administration (more info). The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust as part of the Centre of Excellence in Personalised Healthcare.
