Xiao Gu


I am now a PhD student at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, UK. Before, I obtained BEng degree (Honor Student) in Electronic Engineering from Fudan University in 2018 and MRes degree in Medical Robotics and Image Guided Intervention (Distinction & Dean's Prize) from Imperial College London in 2019. My research interests include physiological signal processing and computer vision technologies leading to healthcare.
