DPhil Student, Physics Group
My work focuses on the biophysical modelling of neural microstructure with the aim of developing new methods for the diagnosis of brain disease characterized by loss of myelin or demyelination. Techniques employed span from theoretical physics, statistics, computation, and neuroscience. I study under the supervision of Dr. Karla Miller (Professor of Biomedical Engineering) and Dr. Sean Foxley (Postdoctoral MRI Physicist).
More generally I am interested in MRI technology development and healthcare innovation through imaging.
Outside academia, I am a runner and cyclist.
The effect of realistic geometries on the susceptibility-weighted MR signal in white matter.
