2018-2019

Monica Armengol

I am Monica. Most recently I've been working as a postdoctoral researcher in an EPSRC project to improve bone mineral density in spinal cord injury individuals at University of Reading. During this time I helped in the development of a system to allow functional electrical stimulation load-shifting standing exercises. Before that, I did my DPhil in NDORMS where I studied the material properties of articular cartilage. My 1st degree was Electronic Engineering and then I did an MBA.  During my post-grad career, I've participated in entrepreneur/start-up competitions and workshops.  I am very excited to be part of the Oxford biodesign and look forward to working with you.

Sarim Ather

Sarim is a Academic Radiology trainee at Oxford University Hospitals who completed his PhD in Neuro-imaging before shifting his research interests to  clinical application and validation of Artificial Intelligence algorithms in Radiology. He has been part of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology Starship programme and has also been recently selected as an NHS clinical Entrepreneurship fellow. Through the programme, he hopes to apply the biodesign methodology to bring innovation into clinical practice.

 

Chulho Hyun (Daryl)

Chulho (Daryl) Hyun graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physics from the University of Waterloo with broad experiences in Optical Coherence Tomography imaging.

Prior to joining the Oxford Biodesign Fellowship, Chulho was a R&D engineer at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where he contributed to translating various bench-top imaging systems into clinics. He holds one US patent and is a co-author of more than 15 journals. He also co-founded Penguin Games, a game for pediatric eczema patients. His interests are at an intersection of aging, medical device, additive manufacturing and machine learning.

Ahmed Elzein Mohamed

Ahmed is a clinical radiology trainee at Oxford University Hospitals. Prior to this he worked in a number of different specialities, including surgery, emergency medicine and psychiatry, both in the UK and abroad.

Ahmed is passionate about medical health innovation and translating new technologies to clinical practice. Clinical radiology is one of the most technology advanced medical fields, this helped him to develop an excellent insight in the upcoming innovations and their applications.

Ahmed is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons and is in the process of becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists. He has recently been selected to the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Program.

 

Piers Milner

Piers Milner is a biomedical engineer. He undertook a PhD in the Biomechanics Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Imperial College London. During this time he worked with leading orthopaedic surgeons, multi-national medtech companies and medtech start-ups. Prior to this he studied Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (MEng) at Imperial College London, where he was awarded the Bessemer Medal for placing top of his cohort.

His interests lie in translational medtech design and research. 

Sarujan Ranjan

Sarujan is a medical doctor who is passionate about innovation within healthcare.  He has worked in a variety of specialities including Acute medicine, Accident & Emergency, psychiatry, endocrinology, geriatric medicine, general surgery and obstetrics & gynaecology.  During his time working in the hospital he has dedicated himself to projects to improve efficiency and clinical care.

Outside of the clinical environment, Sarujan has co-founded businesses in both medical education and events.  He aims to combine his understanding of medicine and business to drive real change in healthcare through innovation.

Erfan Soliman

Erfan has recently completed his DPhil in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. His focus was on the development of a muscle-neuron synapse model for applications in neuromuscular disease research. Before coming to Oxford, he completed his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Harvard University, with a thesis on bio-compatible composites for neuroregeneration. He specialises in engineered solutions for biomedical applications.

Erfan also co-founded and led ‘Oxford Global’, an education company organising leadership and debate workshops in Europe and Asia. His current interests lie in the development of technology to address problems in healthcare. 

Tristan Whitmarsh

With a Master's degree in Computer Graphics, Tristan made a switch to the field of Medical Image Analysis while working towards a PhD degree, which he was awarded in 2012. He subsequently joined the Department of Engineering of the University of Cambridge as a postdoctoral researcher in the Medical Imaging Group. He was awarded a University of Cambridge/ Wellcome Trust Junior Interdisciplinary Fellowships at the Department of Medicine in 2015 where he gained a further appreciation of the needs in the hospital.

During his Oxford Biodesign fellowship, Tristan hopes to gain the knowledge and experience to take novel biomedical technologies from the bench to the bedside.

 

Ti Xu

Ti is an early career physicist with a passion for innovation and healthcare.

Ti is a New Jersey native, who received his BA in Physics from New York University, studying there between 2008-2013. He then pursued a D.Phil in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Physics at the University of Oxford between 2013-2017. Ti's hobbies include cycling, hiking and all things culinary.
