MRI physicist with experience across several areas of MR work, with a background in a range of imaging modalities, including Nuclear Medicine/PET, and CT.

Previous work has included optimisation of quantitative MR imaging such as relaxometry, multi-parametric mapping, diffusion, and spectroscopy sequences.

Current work includes novel contrasts and microstructure modelling for advanced diffusion MR imaging outside of the brain (including time-dependant and double diffusion encoded sequences), focused in muscle in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy patients
