Research Interests

I am a post-doctoral researcher member of the MR Physics team and working on the 7T Terra MRI scanner at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre in Cambridge, UK. I am involved in the UK7T Network Project which aims at standardizing imaging protocols across all 7T sites in UK, namely Cambridge, Cardiff, Oxford, Nottingham and Glasgow, in order to create a solid framework for future multi-site clinical studies at 7T.

I am also interested in developing methods for structural and functional high-field high-resolution MRI, in particular applied to study healthy aging and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Dementia, in collaboration with the Cambridge Centre for Frontotemporal Dementia and Related Disorders lead by Prof. James Rowe.

A new short film by Professor Rowe about his journey as a clinician and researcher. Sponsored by AlzheimersResearchUK.
