Dr Michael Elsdon

Senior Lecturer

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

I joined the team in 2008. I obtained my first and second degrees at Northumbria University. Following this I became a post-doctoral researcher in the area of breast cancer detection on a joint project between Northumbria University and Newcastle University Medical School.
