Dr Shaun Davidson
Fellow, Junior Research Fellow
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Novel Sensors for Digital Health
Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME)
Shaun’s research interests include computer models for the assessment of patient physiological status in a hospital environment and the design of clinical devices. At Oxford, Shaun’s research involves the development of methods for non-contact or non-intrusive estimation of vital signs (such as heart rate, respiratory rate, or blood pressure), combined with machine learning algorithms to predict patient outcomes.
Prior to joining the IBME in 2019, Shaun completed his bachelor’s and PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, along with two research fellowships at the University of Liège, Belgium. While at Canterbury, he worked on real-time clinical modelling and devices for mechanical ventilation, cardiovascular monitoring, and administration of insulin in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
