Christoffer Nellaker is a researcher in Digital Phenotyping based at the Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford. His research encompasses broadly extracting biologically meaningful data from imaging modalities.
Dr. Nellåker’s group is translating the latest developments in computer vision and computational biology to aid diagnosis of rare diseases. The work is a collaborative effort to apply the latest techniques from facial recognition research for disease phenotyping. The aim is to bring this to clinical use to help narrow down the search for a correct diagnosis and to be used together with genome sequencing to identify mutations causing disease.
