Susannah Fleming

MEng DPhil

Senior Quantitative Researcher

My research is focussed on monitoring and diagnosis, particularly using "vital signs" such as heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen levels, temperature, blood pressure, and capillary refill time.

I have particular interests in paediatrics (children) and respiratory diseases, as well as in the accuracy of monitoring technology used by clinicians and patients.

MSc Supervision

I am particularly keen to supervise students considering research on monitoring and diagnosis.  I have experience in systematic reviewing, and would welcome students intending to carry out a systematic review as part of their dissertation.
