Luke Farrow is a Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen and Senior Speciality Registrar in Trauma & Orthopaedics. He is currently undertaking a CSO funded Clinical Academic Fellowship to explore the potential use of Artificial Intelligence to help stratify patients referred for hip and knee replacement surgery. He graduated from his medical studies with Honours from the University of Liverpool, and was awarded 1st Class Honours for his intercalated degree in Sports & Exercise Science at Loughborough University. He has built upon his research interests through participation in the Academic Foundation Programme and the Aberdeen Clinical Academic Training Programme. His primary clinical interest is the use of routinely collected healthcare data to improve outcomes for orthopaedic patients, including AI applications, with a particular focus on lower limb arthroplasty and trauma.

Research interests

Luke is interested in the clinical applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), in particular Deep Learning algorithms and Natural Language Processing methodology. He will be looking to explore some of the current barriers to routine use of AI within musculoskeletal healthcare, particularly focusing on ethical concerns and AI explainability.
