Saad Jbabdi

Professor of Biomedical Engineering

  • Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow
  • Head of Diffusion Analysis, FMRIB
  • Lecturer in Engineering and Senior Research Fellow, St Hilda's College

Broadly, our goal is to achieve a better understanding of the structural and functional organisation of the brain at a systems level. My lab’s current research interests include: 

  • mathematical modelling of diffusion weighted MR
  • comparisons of in-vivo, ex-vivo, and histological techniques in humans and non-human primates
  • human-macaque comparative anatomy
  • microstructure modelling with novel MR pulse sequences
  • models of individual variation in brain function
  • dynamic (incl. diffusion) MR spectroscopy analysis
  • brain connectivity modelling
