Research summary

My interests centre on furthering understanding of connectivity and information processing in the brain, and the mechanisms by which these change due to normal development and disease. I take a high level imaging-based approach to studying these questions, and work on new computational and modelling methods for image analysis, as well as applications in paediatric medicine.

Teaching summary

I teach on the UCL MSc courses in Neuroscience and Advanced Neuroimaging, primarily on diffusion magnetic resonance imaging and its application to understanding brain connectivity.
