Shing Chan

BEng, PhD


Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Statistical Machine Learning for Cardiovascular Medicine

Shing is a researcher in the Big Data Institute and Nuffield Department of Population Health working with Aiden Doherty. His research applies machine learning techniques to extract useful information from wearable devices such as wrist accelerometers and body cameras to better understand the links between physical activity and cardiovascular health. 

Shing obtained his PhD in petroleum engineering from Heriot-Watt in Edinburgh, where he applied generative modelling techniques from computer vision to the problem of subsurface modelling. Prior to that, he obtained his BEng in aeronautical engineering from Instituto Universitario Aeronáutico in Argentina, where he implemented GPU-accelerated codes for airflow simulations for his final year project.
