Research Interests

I am a Clinical Research Fellow and Specialist Registrar in Neurology, based at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, undertaking a PhD under the supervision of Professor James B. Rowe. My research focuses on using neuroimaging techniques including fMRI, MEG and EEG, to determine the utility of neuroimaging based biomarkers and network biomarkers in particular, in determining the presence of dementia pathology or dementia risk in a community based population.

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