Personal profile


I currently work with Dr Laura Parkes and Prof Geoff Parker on the MR imaging aspects of the EPSRC Sensing and Imaging for Diagnosis of Dementias (SIDD) project "Quantification of vascular and neuronal pathology in dementia using PET and MRI".

My research involves the processing and analyses of novel and advanced biomedical magnetic resonance data to measure structure and function, in health and disease, using software that I develop (in Matlab and C++) and packages provided by other researchers and third parties. My favourite imaging modality is diffusion MRI! I love being a scientist in this field and having the opportunity to work with some amazing people and to travel the world to present our cutting-edge work and findings!

In September 2007, I was elected the first Chair of our University's Disabled Staff Network (DSN) - one of many networks and groups established and supported by the University's Equality & Diversity Office. Amongst many other responsibilities, being Chair of the DSN involves organising and chairing meetings of the DSN, promoting disability equality and representing disabled staff at every level of the University. I remained in this position until August 2013, when I became a Co-Chair.
