Elliot Barbeary


Elliot is a DPhil student at the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, supervised by Prof. Alison Noble and Dr. Mireille Gomes. Elliot’s research investigates creating assistive diagnostic tools for the tropical disease, Schistosomiasis. Specifically, he uses computer vision methods to analyse images of the cervix and highlight lesions specific to Female Genital Schistosomiasis. Elliot is part of the Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science CDT (EPSRC) and his work is in partnership with Merck.

Before coming to Oxford, Elliot completed an integrated Master’s in computer science at the University of Warwick. His dissertation focused on ultra-low powered facial detection methods for use in retail. Elliot also completed an industrial placement year at Intel working with the Internet of Things and creating intelligent devices at the edge of a network.

Outside of his research, Elliot represents Reuben College at Linacre Boat Club as both a cox and a rower. In his first year, he competed in multiple internal and external races and, in Summer Eights 2022, won two sets of ‘blades’ - trophies awarded in bumps racing at Oxford for a perfect campaign across four days of racing.
