Research Summary

I am currently the Stevenson Junior Research Fellow in Medical Sciences at University College, Oxford.  I work in the Plasticity group at the FMRIB Centre, led by Heidi Johansen-Berg.

My research seeks to investigate the ability of sensorimotor cortex to adapt and change both in the short-term, and over longer periods of time.  My current work applies high resolution fMRI at 7 tesla to investigate short-term changes in primary somatosensory cortex.  I am also involved in studies of motor plasticity in clinical centres throughout the UK, including the imaging component of the FAST INdICATE trial: a large multi-centre randomised control trial investigating the biomarkers of brain recovery associated with improved motor function early after stroke.

I previously worked at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, in the Laboratory for Computational Neuroimaging, applying ultra high-resolution structural and diffusion MRI in post-mortem tissue to investigate brain microstructure in development and disease.
