Zina Ibrahim is an Artificial Intelligence research scientist with interest in improving people's health. Currently, she is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Computer Science for Health at the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics, King’s College London. Zina’s research spans theoretical foundations and applications of knowledge representation, machine learning, and multi-agent systems, specifically in biological knowledge discovery, healthcare delivery, and e-health infrastructures.
After completing a BSc (Honours) in Software Engineering in 2003, Zina’s interest in AI kick-started her academic career as she obtained her MSc (2004) and PhD (2010) in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Windsor, Canada. Zina joined Richard Dobson’s group in King’s College London a postdoctoral researcher in 2011, and has been a Lecturer since 2016.

Expertise and Public Engagement:
Zina is an operational board member of the Centre of Translational Informatics (CTI), a cross-collaborative initiative aiming to accelerate the development and deployment of digital innovations in mental health, specifically at the South London and Maudsley NHS trust. Through the CTI, I’ve developed and lead the deployment of MyHelathE, an automated platform for patient follow-up outside healthcare institute targeting children with ADHD.
Zina is also an active member of the wider research community, participating in invited lectures in Computer Science and interdisciplinary venues, and leading steering and organising committees of workshops marrying Artificial Intelligence and medicine.
