Dr Iman Hesso


I joined Kingston University in September 2022 as lecturer in Academic Skills. Before that I was  a research associate for an EU funded project (INCISIVE) at Kingston University where I worked alongside the principal investigator on AI enabled care for cancer patients. Prior to becoming part of the INCISIVE team at Kingston University, I worked on a joined project between Aston university and the Pharmacists Defense Association (PDA) focusing on optimizing the role of community pharmacists through an opportunistic public health based model run from community pharmacy. 

I obtained my PhD in 2019 from Kingston University in Pharmacy practice with a focus on optimizing the role of community pharmacists in adherence and inhaler technique education for patients with chronic respiratory conditions.
