Overview

Dr Maedeh Mansoubi is a Research Fellow in Digital Health Innovation and Public Health at the Medical School.

She holds a PhD in Physical Activity, Public Health and Behaviour Change, specialising in using technology and objective measurement, from Loughborough University. Dr Mansoubi is currently working in the field of health innovation and the healthcare system by applying digital technology to promote public health.

Dr Maedeh Mansoubi is the Seed-corn award winner with the University of Exeter. She is developing an Innovative Digital Health and rehabilitation enterprise to improve primary care and Remote healthcare system in the UK in Collaboration with International Industry collaborators. She has built unique expertise and capabilities in Digital Health Innovation by working with and learning from world-renowned scholars in this area.

Dr Mansoubi's novel, innovative research projects bring together multidisciplinary research collaborations and have promising applications for healthcare. She is currently collaborating with an international industry partner to set up the system in the UK to realise her research ambition for digital rehabilitation, telehealth, and performance improvement. She has additional capabilities and skill sets in app development, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a variety of virtual reality systems to use in her meta system for digital rehabilitation.

Dr Mansoubi is an EDI advisor at EPSRC Bionic+ and a frequent guest lecturer at different national and international Universities. Dr Mansoubi teaches in the international workshops and webinars. Also, she is a frequent keynote speaker at international conferences. 

Qualifications

  • PhD in (Behavioural medicine) physical activity, public health, and behaviour change at Loughborough University.
  • M.Sc (Distinction) in Physical Activity and Health Science.
  • B.Sc (Hons) in Cellular & Molecular Biology.

Research

Research interests

Dr Mansoubi previously led several projects that include but are not limited to the Internet of Things (IoT), Application of Virtual Reality (VR) in Rehabilitation, Smart Patient Monitoring and Computer Vision. Dr Mansoubi is an expert in using technology in behavioural change interventions to improve quality of life and wellbeing across different age groups.

Before joining the University of Exeter, she successfully developed and led the Health Innovation and Technology Trials group in collaboration with the national and international experts in Digital Health and Public Health at the MOReS centre, Oxford Brookes University.
