Iulia Popescu

MSc DPhil

NIHR Oxford BRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow

  • Imaging Scientist
  • DPhil in cardiac wall motion abnormality assessment
  • Deep learning, AI, parametric T1 mapping

Postdoctoral Research Fellow @RDMOxford @OxfordBRC focused on biomedical image analysis, with application to cardiac T1 mapping standardization across multiple centres world-wide. I have particular interest in methods for data visualisation and automated quality control (QC). Through my PhD in digital health at the University of Oxford I have developed extensive experience in medical imaging and data sciences.

I am passionate about translating research to clinical practice and patient care. Being directly involved with clinical trials and large-scale multi-centre studies, I have extensive experience in working in highly diverse, multidisciplinary teams including at executive level, and work at the interface of industry and academia.

Funding: My current research is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.

DPhil@oxengsci @UniofOxford focused on developing personalised models for assessing cardiac wall motion abnormality and scar quantification using non-invasive multimodal medical imaging.
