Allow us to introduce Dr Tinashe Mutsvangwa - a biomedical engineer and academic at the University of Cape Town whose interests include health innovation and engaging with communities in and around Cape Town on issues affecting their health and well being.

Tinashe is enthusiastic about changing the landscape of healthcare in Africa and is the Lead of a research group called Medical Image-based Inference and Distributed Diagnosis (Mi2D2), which focuses on the development and use of low-cost medical imaging solutions, particularly for resource-limited settings.  

He’s presenting a talk focused on bridging the radiological divide, and he looks forward to communicating his idea and passion in a way that not only appeals to a wider audience but also develops a narrative that takes his idea beyond the academic world.

We fired a couple of quick and random questions at Tinashe to give you a deeper insight into what makes him tick...
