Rooted in Science.
Driven by Innovation.

Our Team

Our technology and team was born at Oxford University, building on almost a decade of research in imaging diagnostics.

Ross Upton CEO, DIRECTOR, ACADEMIC FOUNDER

Ross is specialised in utilising computational technologies to build diagnostic algorithms within cardiovascular imaging. Ross has a strong academic background within the medical sciences and has undertaken two MSc degrees and a DPhil, receiving multiple grants for technology innovation and being selected as finalist for the 2015 Young Investigator Award in Lisbon. Together with Professor Leeson, Ross founded Ultromics’ underlying technology and as CEO, he drives all aspects of the company from technology development to business strategy.

Paul Leeson CMO, NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ACADEMIC FOUNDER

Paul is Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Oxford and and Director of the Oxford Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility. Following a MB/PhD at Cambridge and research at UCL in London, he moved to Oxford and set up a clinical research programme to pioneer the use of novel imaging approaches for prevention of cardiovascular disease. He is also involved in some of the largest cardiovascular imaging research studies in the world and is lead author of Echocardiography, the best selling training handbook for echocardiographers.

Zachary Yerushalmi INVESTOR DIRECTOR, OSI

Zachary is Principal at OSI (Oxford Sciences Innovation Plc.) where he works with the University’s world-leading researchers to commercialise and develop the university’s intellectual property into market-leading companies. OSI has raised £580M to build an ecosystem that brings Oxford’s ideas to the world.

Curtis Lebleu COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR

Curtis LeBleu is a dynamic marketing executive and recognized commercial leader in the Echocardiography market with over 30 years of commercial ultrasound experience. Curtis lead the development of contrast echocardiography and was previously responsible for the strategy, product definition and launch of the Philips Myocardial Perfusion product. With a strong portfolio of success in strategy development, research, key physician collaboration, marketing and sales, Curtis will oversee commercialization activities including the development of sales, marketing and operations infrastructure.

Deborah Markham TECHNOLOGY LEAD

Deborah uses computational techniques to solve complex scientific challenges, with a specific focus on clinical applications. In addition to a D.Phil. in Mathematical Biology from the University of Oxford and a Bachelor of Science from MIT, Deborah has a range of experience in both academic and commercial settings.

Ed Wilkes DATA SCIENTIST

Ed focuses on the use of computational methods for the analysis and visualisation of large clinical and biochemical data sets. Following his PhD and post-doctoral work at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Ed secured a place on the NHS Scientist Training Programme to train as a Clinical Biochemist. He is most interested in the use of machine learning and other computational techniques to unlock the potential of routine clinical laboratory data and is currently undertaking an elective project at Ultromics as part of his training.

Arian Beqiri COMPUTATIONAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST

Arian focuses on developing computational methods to solve mathematical problems. He has previously worked as a research scientist at King’s College London on optimising medical imaging with MRI. He achieved this using various computational techniques to maximise benefits produced with experimental hardware. Prior to this he completed a PhD in MRI Physics at King’s College London and an MSci in Physics at Imperial College London, with a brief stint in the private sector in between.

Angela Mumith MACHINE LEARNING RESEARCHER

Angela utilises machine learning techniques to solve real world problems. During her PhD at Brunel University London she applied reinforcement learning to a complex design problem. More recently she has worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Brunel University London leading a project to carry out empirical studies in heat transfer. Prior to this she completed an MSc in Engineering Design at Brunel University London and Mechanical engineering at Bachelors level at King’s College London.

Hannah James EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Hannah studied Events Management at Leeds Beckett University, upon graduating she was offered a Personal Assistant role at the John Radcliffe Hospital where she worked for two Consultant Thoracic Surgeons. Hannah is now Executive Assistant to Ross Upton, in addition to this she ensures the smooth running of the Ultromics office including operations, finance, personnel and communications.

Oxford Computer Consultants PARTNER

Ultromics are partnering with Oxford Computer Consultants (OCC) whose Innovation Delivery group specialise in complex engineering software and have a track record in health applications. OCC build commercial applications from research prototypes and will accelerate the delivery of Echuity, bringing a range of skills including UX Design, System Architecture and Application Coding while supporting the growth of Ultromics inhouse teams. The collaboration with OCC is close, and started with the university research group from which Ultromics was formed.
