I am a Neuroradiologist, which means I am involved with medical imaging of primarily the brain and spine. My work is both clinical - in the NHS - as well as research and educationally based - at the University of Edinburgh.
My main interest is in how imaging can be applied to the investigation of stroke, small vessel disease and the ageing process. I also teach about imaging, mainly via online distance learning programmes - the University of Edinburgh MSc Neuroimaging for research, and Imaging MSc.
Research aims and areas of interest
- My main area of interest is currently education.
- My research interest is in how imaging can be applied to the investigation of stroke, small vessel disease and the ageing process.
- A related interest is in image analysis and how measurements of lesions is optimized.
