After obtaining my initial degree from the University of Nottingham I did my PhD at the University of Hull in diffusion imaging of the human prostate and breast, I then moved on to a post-doc at UCL Institute of Neurology where I worked, primarily, on quantitative MR imaging in multiple sclerosis. Amongst the projects I worked on were applying quantitative MT methods to multiple sclerosis and correlating it with the myelin water fraction from T2 analysis. Both these techniques purport to be measures of the myelin content of a tissue. I also worked on applying other image processing techniques, such as texture analysis and PCA to multiple sclerosis. Latterly I became involved in applying quantitative techniques such as atrophy measurement and MT to large scale phase III clinical trials in multiple sclerosis.
In addition I also worked on the longitudinal analysis of low grade gliomas, applying different quantitative techniques to try and predict progression to high grade.
Recently I have moved to the University of Cambridge, where I will be applying these techniques to small vessel disease and other stroke related conditions.
