Anisha is a PhD student in the Surgical and Interventional Engineering CDT supervised by Prof. Tom Vercauteren. Her project is focussed on developing a hyperspectral imaging system for use in neuro-oncological surgery to visualise tumour boundaries in real-time thereby improving patient outcomes. Anisha graduated from the University of Oxford with an MChem in Chemistry in 2020. Her Master’s project centred on developing an advanced Laser Gas Analyser using Cavity Enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy to quantify the concentration of Nitric Oxide in real-time in patients' breath with a view to enabling functional location of inflammation in eosinophilic asthma. This demonstrated the interesting medical applications of spectroscopy which motivated her PhD application.
