PhD Supervisors

Each student project is supervised by an interdisciplinary team involving supervisors from both Artificial Intelligence and Medicine. We have supervisors from across the School of Computing, the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Leeds Institute for Data Analytics and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Student Page provides detail about our current students and their supervisors. As the CDT grows and we add PhD students and projects, each year we will be working with additional supervisors, aiming to find those who are the most suited to each project.



The CDT is led by the University of Leeds. We work in close partnership with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, providing an immersive NHS experience for students in healthcare, a vast repository of data, and extensive clinical input. This enables us to provide an outstanding and grounded training experience that maximizes the capacity of our graduates to translate research into innovation within the NHS and global healthcare.
