Personal profile


I studied physics at the University of Regensburg, Germany, for my BSc and masters degree. I then went on to qualify as a medical physicist during two years working in the radiation therapy department of the university hospital in the above town. My experience with brain imaging analysis during that time lead me on to do a PhD in the field of neuroscience in a collaboration between the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, and UCL in London. This project then resulted in a post-doc position here in Manchester and finally a permanent teaching and research position in 2003.
