Biography

Short Bio

Dorothy Monekosso (PhD) is Professor of Computer Science and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at More Life UK Ltd. Dorothy holds a PhD (2000) in Spacecraft Engineering, a Master’s in Satellite Engineering from the Surrey Space Centre (University of Surrey) and Bachelor in Electronic Engineering. She began her career in space sector, developing on-board computers and control systems for spacecraft and satellites. Dorothy became interested in Artificial Intelligence during her PhD applying machine learning methods and techniques to spacecraft autonomy. On the basis of this work, she was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering, Engineering Foresight Award. Her current research applies the same techniques to develop innovative healthcare technologies. In 2020, she was awarded an honorary fellowship of the British Computer Society for work in assistive and rehabilitation technologies.
