Magnetic Resonance Imaging Physics and Methods Development
My group develops novel physiological MRI methods for the study of healthy and diseased brain.
I am particularly interested in techniques for mapping the macroscopic and microscopic neurovasculature. I collaborate closely with various clinical groups on the development of rapid imaging approaches to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke and small vessel disease. A second thread of research aims to advance ultra-high field imaging, utilizing our 7-tesla scanner. This research combines novel imaging hardware, including parallel RF transmission, with state-of-the-art acquisition techniques. Finally, I also work with the Department of Psychiatry on the development of spectroscopic measurement of neurotransmitters.
I am an active member of University College and hold leadership roles in several imaging centres within Oxford (see links to left). In the broader scientific community, I have been active in the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine in a range of capacities, and am the Editor-in-Chief of the Society journal Magnetic Resonance in Medicine from January 2020.
