Stuart Bowyer, Senior Data Scientist
Stuart leads the CIRP research into how routinely acquired patient clinical data can be widely used to improve clinical practice across GOSH for the benefit of patients and families, as well as supporting a range of internal and external research projects using GOSH data. Prior to joining GOSH, Stuart was a software lead working in wearable medical device and pre-clinical electrophysiology system design and development. Stuart has a PhD in Medical Robotics, MSc in Computer Science, and BEng in Mechanical Engineering.
John Booth, DRE Senior Data Steward
John has worked in IT for over 30 years across many industry sectors and has been developing SQL database systems since the mid 90’s. At GOSH John has specialised in data extraction from complex healthcare systems for clinical research and now leads on the emerging FHIR standard for interoperability of research data.
John is currently undertaking an MSc in Data Science to further his data analytic skills and is the Senior Data Steward in the Digital Research Environment (DRE) Team.
Eleni Pissardiou, Data Scientist
Eleni joined the CIRP team in 2021 and supports various projects that use GOSH data focusing on the development of clinical informatics tools. Eleni has previously worked in health research and has an MSc in Statistics.
Ethelbert Eze, Data Engineer
Ethelbert supports the GOSH DRE team with research data collection through forms, genomic data extraction from a typical PDF genomic report to CSVs, and further transformation of these data elements to the current fast healthcare interoperability resource (FHIR). Ethelbert builds backend pipeline system for the data collection and translation to FHIR. Currently, Ethelbert is working in a collaborative project (iPCHIP) between GOSH and four other children's hospitals around the world researching on clinical improvements in Infantile epilepsy. Ethelbert has a PhD in Machine learning, MSc in Satellite Communications, and a BSc in Electronics Engineering.
