Sigourney Waibel

PhD Student

Sigourney is a PhD student at the Brain Sciences Division, Department of Medicine. Her research involves understanding the relationship between behaviour, measured by wearable sensors, and neurological status (motor function and consciousness). Prior to her PhD, she worked at the Queen Square National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Great Ormond Street Hospital Institute of Child Health, Imperial Innovations, and Horizon2020 European Institute of Innovation and Technology researching healthcare technologies.

Research Brief

The NOAH project aims to develop novel machine learning models to relate movement features derived from wearable limb sensors to free-living behaviour and absolute values and changes in neurological status (motor function and level of consciousness). These algorithms are being applied to acute medical and rehabilitation environments to improve the way we assess and monitor patients.
