Postdoctoral Research Assistant
My current research focuses on MRI data collection, organisation and analysis of two clinical cohorts currently being recruited in the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre (OPDC) and the Stroke Prevention Research Unit (SPRU, OxVasc study).
I am particularly interested in structural and functional MRI.
Regarding structural MRI, I am currently involved in the development of methodological approaches for automated lesions segmentation and the assessment of the relationship between white matter hyperintensities, cardiovascular risk factors and cognition.
Regarding functional MRI I work on resting state functional connectivity and the development of methodological approaches for artefact removal and the evaluation of rfMRI as potential clinical biomarker through reproducibility assessments of MRI-derived measures.
I am involved in post-graduate teaching and supervision, and the development and support of the FSL image analysis software package.
