Background and Research Interests
Declan is an MRC Investigator and Consultant Radiologist who leads the Computational Cardiac Imaging Group at the MRC Laboratory of Medical Sciences. He is also Director for Imaging Research at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. He is a past Roentgen (UK) and Rowan-Williams (Australasia) travelling professor lecturing on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. He is past board member for the British Society of Cardiac MR and chairs the Publications Committee of the Society of Cardiac MR.
Declan’s research is focussed on using machine learning to discover mechanisms that underpin common cardiovascular diseases by integrating data from human imaging, genetics and environmental risk factors. His work includes developing algorithms for predicting human survival from cardiac motion and understanding how complex traits influence the risk of heart failure. He also collaborates with industry to accelerate progress in drug discovery using automated genotype-phenotype modelling.
