Biography

I completed a BSc Physics at the University of Leicester in 2013.

I then went on to the NSHCS Scientist Training Programme (STP) where I completed an MSc in Clinical Sciences (Imaging with Non-Ionising Radiation) (University of Newcastle) and gained state registration as a Clinical Scientist specialising in Medical Physics whilst working at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH).

I am currently undertaking a PhD focussing on using MRI for investigating brain connectivity.

Research Summary

My research focuses on using diffusion and resting-state MRI to look at how brain connectivity is associated with behaviour, genetics and family history. For this I am using publicly accessible data… read more

Current Research

My research focuses on using diffusion and resting-state MRI to look at how brain connectivity is associated with behaviour, genetics and family history. For this I am using publicly accessible data from the young adult Human Connectome Project (HCP) which contains approximately 1200 subjects. It is hoped that once I have modelled brain connectivity-behaviour/genetics associations, these models may be applied to diseased cohorts to aid our understanding of how neuropsychological disorders affect the brain.

Past Research

Previous research interests include the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis using novel MRI measures and the use of tissue equivalent test objects (TETOs) in ultrasound imaging quality control.
