Xiaohong (Sharon) Gao is Professor of Vision and Imaging Science at the Department of Computer Science, Middlesex University, London. She obtained her BSc in Applied Mathematics in 1984 and MSc in Computer Graphics in 1989 in China. After being award PhD on Modelling Colour Appearance in 1994 by Loughborough University, she worked on medical images for several years. Firstly she joined St Mary’s hospital at Imperial College working on retinal images. Then she worked on brain imaging at Addenbrooke’s Hospital at the University of Cambridge.
Subsequently, she took an academic post at Middlesex University, where as a principle investigator or coordinator, she led a team working on the development of 3D brain image databases in collaboration with the Addenbrooke’s Hospital, the project that was funded by the EPSRC (2001-2004, GR/N38725/01). Built on these successes, she later coordinated an EC funded networking project of TIME (Tel-imaging in Medicine, 2005-2007). More recently, as a coordinator, Xiaohong has completed an EU FP7 Marie Curie project on Warehousing Images in the Digital Hospital: Interpretation, Infrastructure, and Integration (WIDTH, 2011-2014) with 11 partners. She was also a principle investigator for a number projects funded by the UK research councils, including Motion Correction for PET Imaging Scanners (British Council 2008), Content Based Medical Image Retrieval and Medical Image Repository (JISC, MIRAGE and MIRAGE2011, 2009-2011).
She has been a peer review college member for AHRC since 2008.
