Miguel is Senior Lecturer at the Usher Institute and Deputy Director at The Bayes Centre, The University of Edinburgh. Originally trained as a computer scientist, he holds a DPhil in Computational Biology from the University of Oxford and postdoctoral experience at UCL. In 2015, he joined The University of Edinburgh as a Chancellor’s Fellow where he established his first research group at the Centre for Medical Informatics, Usher Institute. Since May 2021, he’s seconded to The Bayes Centre as Deputy Director. His group's research is on vascular structure and function. Their approach is theoretical through mathematical modelling and machine learning, and they work closely with vascular/cancer biologists and clinicians. Their research interests concern: a) the development of automated methods for eye and systemic disease diagnosis in retinal scans, b) the study of the tumour microvascular environment and its relationship with treatment, c) the mechanistic investigation of vascular remodelling during angiogenesis.
