Echoes Around the Home.

Echoes Around The Home is a cross disciplinary project conceived and led by Dr Nicholas Firth (UCL Computer Science), working with social scientists Prof. Mary Pat Sullivan (Nipissing University Applied and Professional Studies) and Emma Harding (UCL Institute of Neurology), neuropsychologist Prof. Sebastian Crutch (UCL Institute of Neurology) and computer scientist Prof. Daniel Alexander (UCL Computer Science). This project has been funded by a Social Science Plus+ award from The Collaborative Social Science Domain UCL and will begin installing Echo’s in late March. More...

Title: Computational Modelling in Biomedical Imaging


The purpose of this talk is to give an overview of the research I am involved in. My research is focused on the use of computational modelling for better acquisition and understanding of images. More specifically I will firstly focus on development and applications of MRI simulations.  Then I will introduce my work in microstructure Imaging and using optimisation of the diffusion gradient waveforms in diffusion MRI to improve sensitivity to tissue parameters. I will in particularly focus on axon diameter mapping using oscillating  gradient sequences. Finally I will describe my more recent work in using Machine Learning to learn computational models in Microstructure Imaging.
