Josh Strong

DPhil Student

Originally from Manchester, I studied BSc Mathematics at the University of York, followed by MSc Data Science at UCL. Upon graduating, I was employed by the NHS as a data scientist for both trust-level and national teams. Most recently, working within the Economics and Strategic Analysis team at NHS England, I worked primarily on the Early Warning System; a Bayesian hierarchical model used to short-term forecast COVID hospital metrics at the trust, regional and national levels.

I am now a member of the Noble Group, led by Professor Alison Noble, at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. Here, I am researching the applications of human-AI collaboration in healthcare—methods through which humans and AI can jointly achieve goals more successfully than if they were working independently. I'm quite interested and actively researching in how large language models can be applied in this topic.

Outside my research, I (sometimes) enjoy watching the Premier League as an avid Manchester United fan, playing badminton and travelling across the UK.
