Research Theme

Clinical and Veterinary Neuroscience


I am a Clinical Neurosciences PhD student, interested primarily in neuroscience and statistics. My current work is on validating fMRI analysis methods, e.g. regarding the hemodynamic response function (how does blood flow through the brain?) and autocorrelation modelling.
