Professor Alison Noble OBE FREng FRS is the Technikos Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Oxford University Department of Engineering Science, Associate Head of MPLS Division (Industry and Innovation), and a Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford. She is a former Director of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (2012-16).

Professor Noble’s research interest is in biomedical image analysis, with a particular focus on raising the profile of ultrasound imaging as a first class data type by understanding the interplay of ultrasound device design (physics), clinical acquisition, and downstream image analysis and computer vision. Her most recent research has concerned applying machine learning to ultrasound to advance automatic 2D, 3D and video ultrasound analysis. Her research is motivated by unmet important clinical needs in developed world and developing world settings, and involves inter-disciplinary translational research collaborations with clinical groups from the UK and overseas. In 2016, she was the recipient of a 5-year ERC Advanced Grant entitled “Perception Ultrasound by Learning Sonographer Experience (PULSE)”, which aims to advance understanding of how to develop next generation ultrasound systems by utilizing machine learning.
