Research summary

I am a Neuroradiologist, which means I am involved with medical imaging of primarily the brain & spine. My work is both clinical - in the NHS - as well as research & educationally based - at the University of Edinburgh.

My main research interest is in how imaging can be applied to the investigation of stroke, small vessel disease & the ageing process. I also teach about imaging, mainly via online learning degree programmes - at the Edinburgh Imaging Academy.
