This exciting PhD studentship based at Warwick Medical School will explore how machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques can inform emergency and critical care decision-making, and apply these methods to large clinical datasets. The proposed project is driven by evidence that clinicians find that making decisions about critical care interventions challenging, and that there is wide variability in decision-making between clinicians. Examples of these decisions include cardiopulmonary resuscitation and decisions about admission to critical care. A key reason for this is the absence of validated tools to support decision-making.

The availability of large electronic datasets has the potential to enable machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to inform critical care practice through development of decision-support tools, particularly in relation to decision-making about the likely effectiveness of treatments. This is the focus of this PhD studentship.

To ensure that the student benefits from both clinical and methodological expertise, the studentship will be jointly supervised by academics from Warwick Medical School (Professor Gavin Perkins and Dr Keith Couper) and the Centre for Applied Artificial Intelligence, Warwick Manufacturing Group (Professor Giovanni Montana, WMG). Warwick Medical School and Warwick Manufacturing Group have international reputations for delivering high quality and impactful research.

This innovative and inter-disciplinary studentship will also provide opportunities to work with regional healthcare providers. The successful student must have a strong background in statistics or other relevant discipline (e.g. computer science/ engineering) and demonstrable programming skills.
