Aurore Lyon wins the Young Investigator Award in the Computing in Cardiology Conference


Aurore Lyon has been awarded the Young Investigator Award at the 2015 Computing in Cardiology(CinC) Conference in Nice, France (Sept 6-9, 2015).

CinC provides a forum for scientists and professionals from the fields of medicine, physics, engineering and computer science to discuss their current research in topics pertaining to computing in clinical cardiology and cardiovascular physiology.

Aurore's work is part of her DPhil in Computational Medicine at the interface of Computer Science and Medicine, supervised by Dr Ana Minchole and Professors Nando De Freitas and Blanca Rodriguez, and in collaboration with cardiologists at the John Radcliffe Hospital, including Dr Rina Ariga and Professors Hugh Watkins and Stefan Neubauer. 

Her study focuses on the analysis of the electrocardiogram to identify potentially lethal abnormalities in cardiac function in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy using signal processing and machine learning techniques. 

Aurore holds a DPhil scholarship from the British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence at Oxford.
