Dr Chris Duckworth

Healthcare Research Engineer based in the IT Innovation Centre, as part of the School of Electronics and Computer Science. Previously a PhD student (Astrophysics) at the University of St. Andrews, and, Flatiron Institute (New York), before joining the centre in early 2021. 

I work on data science problems in healthcare, with a focus on developing machine learning models for clinical decision making support. My current research involves investigating the impact of COVID-19 on Emergency Department admissions, and the operation and procedural shift of hospitals.
