Current Projects

Elizabeth primarily focuses on gaze estimation and automation of guidance techniques for the first trimester US scanning where the saliency predictions direct novice and experienced sonographers’ gaze to important anatomy.

Her research project titles are:

1. "First trimester gaze pattern estimation using stochastic augmentation policy search for single frame saliency prediction". Manuscript accepted to MIUA2021 which mainly focused on data augmentation techniques to help reduce data imbalance and over-fitting whilst improving the segmentation performance.

2. "First trimester video saliency prediction using cLSTMU-Net with stochastic augmentation". Manuscript accepted to ISBI2022 where spatio-temporal connectivity was explored to differentiate between the static and fast-moving US frames, improving saliency predictions.
