I am a 2nd-year PhD Student at the Unit, co-supervised by Dr Simon White (MRC BSU) and Professor Rik Henson (MRC CBU). I did my undergraduate in Mathematics here at Cambridge, focusing on statistics during Part III.
My PhD project is on statistical neuroimaging. More specifically, I am interested in methods to analyse dynamic functional connectivity in the brain with the aim of detecting differences between groups of individuals. These methods draw on a wide range of mathematics, including (but not limited to) time series analysis, functional data analysis, and statistical network analysis. Recently, I have focused on statistical network analysis, modelling the brain as a dynamic network. The challenge here is to accurately infer the changing network structure of the brain and to develop tests to find differences in the dynamic network structure between (groups of) individuals.
