SPC student Jennifer Bishop (2014) wins national Engineering prizes
St Peter's student, Jennifer Bishop (2014), has been awarded two national prizes for her work on developing AI algorithms to improve the flow of patients through hospitals.
Jennifer was claimed the IMechE 'Vicon Award for Best Medical Engineering Undergraduate' and the Dennis Hill award for 'Best MEng or MSc Student in Biomedical Engineering' in 2018. Her 4th-year project around this work is also subject to a patent application and will shortly be licensed to commercial partners for implementation in healthcare systems.
Originally from Stockport, Jennifer took her GCSEs at a local comprehensive school and her A-levels at Loreto Sixth Form College in Manchester. She then went on to study Engineering Science at St Peter’s, from which she recently graduated with a first class MEng degree.
Jennifer’s interest in biomedical engineering developed as a result of a second-year summer internship at University of Oxford spinout, Oxehealth.
