      You are most welcome! I hope we didn’t miss out too many of your questions.

      There are many different faces to what an engineer’s role is in a hospital. Mine is that of an engineering researcher. Most of the time I’m based at the University of Surrey doing my research. But we collaborate with a nearby hospital where we do experiments and get data from their scanners and then I bring it back to the University to do more work on it.
