Prof. Rhode obtained his bachelor’s degree in Basic Medical Sciences and Radiological Sciences at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals Medical School in 1992. From 1998 to 2001, he studied for a doctorate in the Department of Surgery, University College London, investigating quantitative blood flow analysis using X-ray angiography. From 2001 to 2007, Prof. Rhode was employed at the Division of Imaging Sciences, King’s College London as a post-doctoral researcher working in the field of image-guided interventions, particularly catheter-based electrophysiology procedures. During this time, he developed novel methods for the registration of cardiac MRI data to X-ray fluoroscopy data for guiding minimally-invasive catheter-based procedures in the hybrid XMR environment. He also worked in close collaboration with industry to extend these techniques to provide image-guided solutions for standard catheter laboratories.
In 2007, Prof. Rhode was appointed Lecturer in Image Processing at King’s College London, Senior Lecturer in 2011, Reader in Biomedical Engineering in 2015 and Professor in 2016. His current research interests include image-guided interventions, intelligent mechatronics systems for interventions and ultrasound imaging, 3D printing in healthcare and pedagogy for biomedical engineering.
Prof. Rhode has more than 400 publications in journals, conference proceedings, book chapters, and patents.
Prof. Rhode is Head of Education for the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences. He oversees the School’s delivery of taught programmes, including the BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering, MSc/MRes Healthcare Technologies and the iBSc Imaging Sciences.
