I currently work as an MR Analyst at Imanova Ltd.

At Imperial I am an Honorary Research Fellow in the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit, Division of Brain Sciences, where I was previously a postdoctoral Research Associate for four years.

I supervise two PhD students: Csaba Orban, who is investigating resting state fMRI in addiction; and Andre Santos Ribeiro, who is investigating structural registration issues in MRI.

My research interests include the acqusition and analysis of functional brain images using magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), especially the detection and removal of artefacts which confound our abilities to understand the underlying brain activity.

Before Imperial, I did my PhD at the University of Bristol in the Computer Vision group and Psychopharmacology Unit developing data-driven methods for the analysis of pharmacological MRI data. Going back even further I did my MSc in Medical Physics at the University of Aberdeen, and, before that, my BSc in Physics at University College London.
