My research uses multimodal neuroimaging techniques to elucidate the impact on structural and functional connectivity in the context of neurological disease and its subsequent symptomatology.
Currently, my work is centered around the MRC funded 'Memory and Amnesia Project (MAP)' with the aim to characterise memory dysfunction from both neuropsychological and neuroimaging perspectives in patients with focal hippocampal damage and/or extra-hippocampal damage.
Other ongoing projects include the investigation of brain network plasticity in Parkinson's disease as a function of disease burden and development of an imaging biomarker identifying Parkinson's disease patients at-risk of developing dementia.
