I am an  Associate Professor in the field of Mobile health (mHealth) at Kingston University London. I am the founder of the research group Digital Media for Health in 2012.    I  obtained my PhD in mHealth with the thesis title 'Medical Quality of Service for Optimised Ultrasound Streaming in Wireless Robotic Tele-ultrasonography System' from the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University, UK in 2008.

My research interests are mainly in the areas of Data and Multimedia Communication, Networking and Information Technology in healthcare and medical applications. I have more than 15 years of experience in mHealth. I have been involved in many national and international mHealth projects in the areas of chronic disease management (e.g. diabetes, COPD and Cancer), decision support systems, behavioural change management, telehealth and telecare in developing countries, need assessment and evaluation of telehealth services, Social robotics, medical video streaming, medical Quality of Service and medical Quality of Experience and Big Data for Health, namely; OTELO, E-Dispute, Delphi, LTE-Health, WELCOME and AEGLE.  I was part of one of the top 10 finalist teams (SCANURSE) of The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE (2014) for developing innovative and integrated diagnostic technologies, helping citizens make their own reliable health diagnoses anywhere and anytime. 

I am the author and co-author of more than 50 journals, peer reviewed conferences and book chapters.  I am a member of the review panels for many Transactions and journals and a member of the program committee for a number of international conferences. I am grants proposals reviewer on both the MRC and the NIHR research bodies.  I was a member and editor of the ITU Focus Group which is developing the standard for M2M service layer for e-health.I was the Chair for many special sessions and workshops in major international conferences (e.g. IEEE/EMBC and MobiHealth).  I have been an invited speaker at a number of Industrial, scientific and governmental events (e.g. ETSI, British Council-BUIC and Intel).  I am a committee member (Industry relation coordinator) of the IEEE communication Society – Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) (2015-2017), which is a standing committee within the IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc). Its mission is to promote the visibility and roles of women communications engineers and to provide a venue for their professional growth.

I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the Institute of Engineering Technology (IET) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).
