Location: Chelmsford

Marzia Hoque Tania is doing her PhD on artificial intelligence and decision support system implementing in the health domain.


Marzia's previous research works focused on Solar PV technology, renewable energy and solar cell materials. She is a former lecturer in the department of EEE at Atish Dipankar University of Science and Technology. She also worked as a part time faculty member in Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST). She completed her BSc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from AUST and M.Phil in Materials Science from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

More recently, Marzia has contributed towards our TB Test project. This research was in partnership with Universiti Putra Malaysia and supported by the Newton Fund.
Watch Marzia talk about her work in our TB Test project.
