Ioana Hill

Trainee Patent Attorney

Ioana is currently completing a PhD in Machine Learning applied to Medical Imaging at University College London (UCL). Her research is focused on developing new machine learning based computational models for neuroimaging applications using magnetic resonance imaging. Ioana’s PhD is supported by a strong academic record in the field. She has achieved distinctions in both her MRes (Medical Imaging) and MSc (Advanced Computer Science) degrees, winning the ‘Best Student’ award in the latter. Over the course of her academic career, Ioana has grown her passion for machine learning and developed a deep understanding of the topic across a wide variety of applications.
Ioana’s keen interest in the applications of machine learning extends beyond academia. She has previously worked in a FinTech scale-up where she used TensorFlow to develop deep learning models for pattern recognition in stock market data.
Ioana joined Kilburn & Strode in September 2019 and is currently training to become a European and UK patent attorney in the Tech group.
