Me

I’m a MRI Physicist, science and technology enthusiast, and occasional musician.  I live in London and work as a post doc researcher at University College London, specialising in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and near infrared spectroscopy, developing these methods and applying them in biomedical research.

My Ph.D thesis is titled “Parallel Transmission Methods for Arterial Spin Labelling Magnetic Resonance Imaging”, and concerns the novel application of radio-frequency hardware to produce MR images which quantitatively correspond to the perfusion territory of an artery within the brain. My research interests lie in advanced MRI imaging techniques, specifically Arterial Spin Labelling, RF coils, system hardware, and MR safety.

I am also into hacking and making things, which include electronics projects using the Arduino platform, night vision, and guitar FX. More details will soon be posted on the projects pages.
