Interests

I am an expert in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). I lead a group developing advanced MRI and MRS methods usnig the 7T Terra MRI scanner at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre. Our aim is to push the boundaries of MRI techniques, and to translate the latest methods ready for use in clinical studies in collaboration with colleagues in Clinical Neurosciences and elsewhere. My work in Cambridge has a particular focus on applications in the human brain.

I hold a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society. This also funds work by my research group at the OCMR centre, University of Oxford, who develop and translate advanced 7T MRI and MRS methods to study metabolism in the human heart and liver.

I am a work-package leader in the EU-funded "Non-invasive Chemistry Imaging in the Whole Human Body" (NICI) consortium.

I was awarded the title "Associate Professor of Biomedical Imaging" by the University of Oxford in 2016.
