Suja Saraswathi, Senior Scientist, Healthcare Research, Philips India
My name is Suja, and I’ve been a Senior Scientist in Healthcare Research at Philips for more than three years now. I work mainly on clinical projects, writing algorithms and carrying out studies to solve healthcare issues. Working closely with clinicians, we get to see what’s really happening on the ground, and it’s exciting to know that my work has real-world impact.
Collaborating with Clinicians and Hospitals
A memorable project was one we did in collaboration with a local hospital. We were investigating methods to identify brain tumour grades, and worked closely with the neural clinician from that hospital. To come up with the ideal solution, we had to exchange technical knowledge and share ideas; learning from the clinician, and she learning from us in turn.
