Steven Niederer

Professor, School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences, Kings College London & Co-Director (Health) Turing Research and Innovation Cluster: Digital Twins, The Alan Turing Institute

Steven is a leading scientist and researcher in the field of biomedical engineering. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science from the University of Auckland and went on to pursue his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Oxford, where he focused on the development of mathematical models of the cardiovascular system.

After completing his doctoral studies, Steven joined King’s College London, where he has made significant contributions to the field of biomedical engineering. His research  focused on developing computational models to better understand cardiovascular diseases and to improve clinical decision-making. His simulations were particularly useful in optimising pacemaker placement and predicting the effects of drugs on the heart.

Steven’s work has been widely recognised and he has received numerous awards and honours for his contributions to the field. In 2016, he was awarded the Engineering and Physical Research Council Health Care Technologies Fellowship British and, in 2019, he was the recipient of a prestigious European Research Council Consolidator award.

Steven was Professor of Biomedical Engineering at King’s College London, before he took up a new position at Imperial College London. He also serves as a Co-Director for the Alan Turing Institute Turing Innovation Cluster in Digital Twins. His research continues to focus on developing innovative computational models to further our understanding of cardiovascular disease and to help medical professionals make better clinical decisions.
