Dr Rachel Sparks is a Lecturer in Surgical and Interventional Engineering in the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences. The primary focus of her research is on developing computer assisted planning and image-guided navigation techniques to increase accuracy of medical diagnosis and improve safety during surgical interventions. This work involves building patient-specific models to provide quantitative measures of risk and efficacy related to surgical interventions, including the placement of tools, removal or treatment of tissue. Ongoing work is focused on using deep learning to improve diagnosis and prognosis in movement disorders, with a focus on epilepsy.
