Dr Alix Bird is a medical doctor and PhD candidate, working in the field of medical artificial intelligence. Their research aims to develop a scalable method of assessing rheumatoid arthritis severity, to aid in early diagnosis, the evaluation of drug efficacy in clinical trials, and decisions regarding therapy escalation.
Alix completed a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Adelaide and worked as a junior doctor at the Royal Adelaide Hospital before moving into research.
Their supervisors are Professor Lyle Palmer, Professor Susanna Proudman and Dr Lauren Oakden-Rayner.
