Martin Chapman is a Research Associate in the School of Population Health and Environmental Sciences at King’s College London. He also works with the Department of Informatics at King’s College London. His research interests include computational modelling and simulation, search games and distributed ledger technologies. His current focus is on implementing software to gather patient data from disparate sources (e.g. wellness sensors and EHRs) for the purpose of making and explaining decisions in the context of healthcare. Martin received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from King’s College London.

Isabel is a Lecturer in Computer Science at Brunel University; and a Visiting Researcher in the Department of Informatics at King’s College London. Isabel’s research interests are in data-driven automated reasoning, and its transparency and explainability. Her PhD research developed a computational argumentation based system to support the appropriate selection of statistical model given a research objective and available data.
Prior to joining King’s College London Isabel worked for more than 10 years as a data science consultant in industry, including 8 years in SAS. Isabel read Statistics, Operations Research and Economics at Tel Aviv University and received her Ph.D. in Informatics from King’s College London. Isabel regularly serves on program committees for AI and Health Informatics conferences such as IJCAI, ECAI and AMIA.

Dr Talya Porat is a research fellow in Human Factors Engineering at King’s College London at the Department of Primary Care and Public Health Sciences. Her research is in the fields of human factors, human-computer interaction, usability and cognitive engineering. She is particularly interested in how to design and evaluate effective interactive healthcare interventions and technologies to improve patient outcomes. In addition to her research experience, Talya has more than 10 years of experience as a practitioner in human factors and human-computer interaction, including being the founder and head of Deutsche Telekom Research and Usability Lab at Ben-Gurion University, human factors consultant for high-tech companies and co-president of UXPA Israel (User Experience Professional Association).

Dr Sanjay Modgil is a senior lecturer in the AIS (Agents and Intelligent
Systems Group), Department of Informatics, King’s College London. He is the chair of the European Association of Multiagent Systems and on the editorial board of Argument and Computation. His main area of research is in the development of logic-based models of argumentation for rational reasoning and decision making, and on formalising models of dialogue in which rational conclusions are arrived at through the dialectical exchange of argument and counter-argument. He has extensively applied his models to reasoning and decision making in the medical domain

Mark Ashworth has been a GP in south London for 30 years and is Reader
in Primary Care at the School of Population Health and Environmental
Sciences based on the Guy’s Hospital campus of King’s College London.
His research interests include quality measurement in primary care (with
a particular interest in the Quality and Outcomes Framework, a quality
based incentive scheme in primary care), psychometrics (with a
particular interest in patient-centred mental health outcome measures –
his group devised PSYCHLOPS: and the physical
health of patients with mental health conditions (he has led on the
research linkage of primary care data with secondary care mental health

Dr Vasa Curcin is a Senior Lecturer in Health Informatics, leading the
Biomedical Informatics Group at School of Population Health and
Environmental Sciences and is also seconded at 40% to the Department of
Informatics at King’s College London. He received his PhD from Imperial
College London in 2009 and joined KCL in 2014. His research focuses on
the theoretical informatics foundations and resulting software
infrastructures for the Learning Health Systems, specifically in the
areas of clinical trials and decision support systems, together with the
role of data provenance in delivering reproducibility and auditability
to scientific tasks. He has published over 100 papers in refereed
journals, conferences and workshops. He is Associate Editor for Wiley
Learning Health Systems Journal and Sage Digital Health Journal.
