Initially trained in theoretical physics, Dr. Clifford’s research focuses on applying signal processing, machine learning, and physiological modeling to medicine to classify, track and predict health and illness. Beginning with cardiology, critical care and maternal/fetal health, Dr. Clifford has spent much of the last 10 years developing programs focused on mental health and neurological diseases.

While on faculty at the University of Oxford, he co-founded the Sleep & Circadian Neuroscience Institute, focusing on sleep and mental health.
