Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medical Image Analysis
Monday to Friday 9-5
I studied cellular neuroscience at the University of Dundee, before developing an interest in the use of medical imaging in research in my Honours project. I moved to study a Masters degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Neuroimaging, studying brain image analysis on structural and functional MRI. Since 2018, I studied for a PhD in Cardiovascular Science at the University of Glasgow, using MRI to investigate carotid-brain interactions in people with stroke, and evaluating putative treatment effects of allopurinol induction on carotid atherosclerosis. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medical Image Analysis in Professor Joanna Wardlaw's group, where I am involved in brain image segmentation methods in different clinical studies.
- PhD Cardiovascular Sciences (viva pending), University of Glasgow (2018-22)
- MSc(Res) Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Neuroimaging, The University of Sheffield (2016-17)
- BSc(Hons) Neurosciences, University of Dundee (2012-16)
I am interested in the use of structural neuroimaging in stroke and dementia, and understanding cognitive ageing in population based studies. I am involved in a few studies, mainly Lothian Birth Cohort 1936, SVDS@Target and Mild Stroke Study 3.
