The aims of my work in this project are to produce a number of Affimer (nanocomposite biosensors) that can successful detect an analyte with reproducibility, whilst being quick and efficient.
Parkinson’s can be difficult to diagnose with only standard clinical assessments, which relies solely on subjective tests. As a result of receiving funding to work with ClearSky Medical Diagnostics, I am adapting and preparing equipment for diagnosing Parkinson’s so that it is fit for both clinical studies and for use by medical professionals.
I have started exploring hyper-spectral imaging technologies and their application for vein detection. The aim of this project is to assess the performance of various image classification algorithms for detecting and locating veins within hyper-spectral images in order to help nurses with injection.
I joined Dr Swift’s group in the University of Bradford to work on Polymer/Bacteria sensing technologies, primarily to analyse and characterise the polymer/bacteria combinations
Working closely with Prof Raed Abd-Alhameed and others, I aim to design, develop and build an RFID tag antenna for high read range detection of patient activity. This research is cutting edge and can help change the way elderly and vulnerable patients are monitored without any attachment onto their body or ware.
