Peter Hammond, BA, MSc (Computer Science), MSc (Mathematics), PhD

Professor and Head of Biomedical Informatics Unit
Eastman Dental Institute of Oral Health Care Sciences
University College London

Research Interests:

Application of Logic Programming, Machine Learning and Computer Vision in:

  • Craniofacial development, growth and repair
  • Simulating cell interactions
  • Safety and clinical trial design
Current Projects:

Craniofacial analysis in dysmorphic syndromes (funded by Birth Defects Foundation & Wellcome Trust).

Simulation of effects of orthognathic surgery on soft tissue (funded internally).

Decision support in clinical trial design (funded by UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council & UK Government Scheme Teaching Company Directorate).

Computer simulation of epithelial cell interactions (funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council).
