Miguel is Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and his research is on vascular structure and function. His approach is primarily theoretical through mathematical modelling and machine learning in close collaboration with vascular/cancer biologists and clinicians.

His research interests concern: a) the development of automated methods for eye and systemic disease diagnosis in retinal scans, b) the study of the tumour microvascular environment and its impact on treatment, c) the mechanistic investigation of vascular remodelling during angiogenesis.
