Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the theme of computational neuro-oncology. Currently, I use proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy to observe in vivo metabolite profiles of paediatric brain tumours and investigate its clinical translation. I am also interested in computational approaches in oncology such as mathematical modelling and machine learning. My work has been funded by National Institute of Health Research, Help Harry Help Others and Little Princess Trust.


Teddy Zhao is a research fellow at Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences, University of Birmingham. He was educated in Nanjing, China and Rennes, France before completing a PhD in University of Birmingham. He started his research career from biomedical signal processing during master studies, and now he has established the research theme of computational neuro-oncology with transdisciplinary approaches. He is specifically interested in understanding tumours by using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy with physical, computational, biochemical, and clinical interpretations. He is keen to collaborate with colleagues with background in natural science and clinical medicine.
