Javier Santos

PhD Candidate


Javier is an Aerospace Engineer, specialized in biomedical technology engineering (MscEng.) and Doctor of Medicine (MD). He is currently working on his PhD thesis titled "Adaptive model to predict survival of glioblastoma IDH wildtype adult patients using Bayesian networks", while finishing his last year of medical specialization in Medical Oncology at the Hospital Regional Universitario de Málaga, Spain.

During his academic and professional career, he realized how much engineering and oncology could mutually benefit from working together and has tried to put in contact two fields as complex but also as interesting as Oncology and mathematical models. As visiting PhD student at the NKI he collaborates on several projects of the Artificial Intelligence for Oncology group under the supervision of Dr. Jonas Teuwen.
