Thomas Purdie, PhD

My research has focused on developing machine learning algorithms and methods for automating clinical radiation oncology workflow processes. For the last nine years, my research has been applying novel machine learning methods to radiation treatment planning and quality assurance, as well as more investigative research areas such as outcomes prediction incorporating radiation treatment information for radiomics. Another key component of my research has been related to disseminating and commercializing technology. I have started a number of internal machine learning based studies in the Radiation Medicine Program and have also licensed core machine learning technology to companies that can promote the widespread clinical adoption of machine learning in radiation oncology and health care in general.
