Gower St, London, WC1E 6JA
I am a Reader in Medical Physics at UCL. My group’s research is based around solving clinical problems by intelligent use of multimodal imaging data. This is divided between four themes:
· Optical imaging
My main research area has been developing optical tomography for breast cancer and functional brain imaging of adults and children. It is currently supported by 3 grants, and a long-term collaboration with Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.
I am applying multimodality imaging techniques to radiotherapy, particularly as part of UCL’s new Proton Therapy Centre. I created and now direct a new DTP in Physics of Cancer Therapy.
· Intelligent analysis of routinely acquired patient data
Examples include neonatal monitoring, predicting cancer outcomes and examining risk factors for breast cancer.
· Multispectral imaging of historical manuscripts
I am extending multimodality medical imaging techniques to recovering lost text in historical documents with the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities.
