Dominic King

Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Imperial College London

In early 2016, I moved from my role as a Clinical Lecturer in Surgery at Imperial to work at DeepMind. I went on to lead DeepMind Health before our team joined Google Health in late 2019, where I serve as the UK Lead.

I continue as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Imperial, supervising PhD students and contributing to applied research at the Institute of Global Health Innovation. This includes developing an AI system for breast cancer screening in conjunction with Google Health that was published in Nature in early 2020.
