Georgina is an EPSRC funded PhD student at Cambridge University in the Paediatric and Electrical Engineering Departments, undertaking a collaborative project with UCL and DOT-HUB. Her research focuses on the development of a new generation of wearable DOT neuroimaging systems capable of monitoring brain metabolism in addition to oxygenation. Following system development she will be investigating several clinical applications including sleep, dementia and traumatic brain injury in pre-term babies.

Georgina completed an MSci degree in Medical Physics at UCL, where she first encountered medical optics and its applications in hospitals. She then studied at the Centre for Doctoral Training with UCL and Cambridge obtaining an MRes degree in Connected Electronic and Photonic Systems. This background puts her in a unique position to collate Physics, Engineering and Electrical Engineering principles and apply them to research in the advancement of medical technologies.
