Khoa graduated from Monash University with an MBBS(Hons)/BMedSc(Hons) and is a Master of Science in Public Health candidate from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He is currently an Austin Health doctor and has co-founded HorusAI, an award-winning medical artificial intelligence company in malaria diagnosis and med_hack, an interdisciplinary medical technology hackathon. He has previously completed research at the University of Oxford under Professor John Fox with publications in medical AI, interned at the World Health Organisation under VISION2020 Architect Dr. Ivo Kocur and developed an automated retinal diagnosis platform with IBM Watson Health.
As a John Monash Scholar, Khoa will complete postgraduate studies in biomedical engineering in the United States to develop expertise in the design and construction of essential medical devices and multiplexed point-of-care testing. In doing so, Khoa aims to combine an intuition with the nuances of clinical need with a deep understanding of technological possibility to improve health equity for disadvantaged populations with a field known as low-resource or “frugal” medical technology.
In his spare time, Khoa moonlights as a professional DJ in EDM, avid traveller and extremely amateur snowboarder.
