Overview

Dr Shrapnel is a senior lecturer at SMP and an interdisciplinary scientist working at the interface of causality and machine learning. She has both a clinical and technical background, with bachelor's degrees in Medical Science, Medicine and Surgery, a Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, a Master's degree in Bioengineering (Imperial College, London) and a PhD in physics and philosophy—on the topic of quantum causal machine learning. She has been a registered and practicing medical practitioner for over 20 years. Sally is currently a CI at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems and leads an international project to develop AI algorithms to predict acute kidney injury in COVID-19. Her research combines theory, methodology, and applications across a broad range of disciplines.
