A Katsina-born PhD student, Bashir Isah Dodo has won two great prizes for his doctoral research in a London University, Brunel London University, Katsina Post learned.
The awards won by the intelligent student are Vice Chancellor’s prize for doctoral research and Dean’s Prize for Innovation and Impact in Doctoral Research.
Recall that Bashir Dodo won ‘Best Student Paper’ at the BIOIMAGING 2018 conference in Portugal, for the development of a new algorithm which could improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosis for certain eye diseases.
In the paper he presented, Mr. Dodo demonstrated a new algorithm for OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) equipment which can automatically segment images of the retina into distinct layers.
It’s hoped the new technique, which can separate the retina into seven individual layers, could improve the accuracy and speed of diagnosis, and help save the sight of patients by identifying damage earlier.
