Dr Andrew King

Biographical details

Dr King received a BSc. (Hons) degree in Computer Science from Manchester University in 1989, an MSc. (with distinction) in Cognition, Computing and Psychology from Warwick University in 1992, and a PhD degree in Computer Science from Warwick University in 1997. He has been a postdoctoral researcher with the Computational Imaging Sciences Group and the Division of Imaging Sciences at King’s College London, working mainly on registration, image-guided interventions and soft-tissue modelling. From 2001-2005 he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at Mekelle University in Northern Ethiopia. Since 2006 he has worked in the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at King's, focusing on machine learning and medical image analysis applied to moving organs.

Research interests

Dr King's research focuses primarily on the use of machine learning and image analysis techniques to problems in medicine. Much of this work has involved modelling and estimation of repetitive motion. Organ motion due to respiration and the beating of the heart is approximately periodic, so measurements of this motion made from imaging data can be used to construct mathematical models of the periodic motion and its variability. Such models can be applied to update guidance information in image-guided interventions or to correct acquired imaging data for the corrupting effects of motion. Dr King has an interest in applying such models in the context of image-guided cardiac interventions and PET-MR imaging.
