- Ultrahigh field: ease of use and safety
- Supervising DPhil students
I am interested in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy.
My research focuses on the interaction of motion with MR for both imaging and spectroscopy, ultra-high field RF safety and simplification of parallel transmit. I have developed novel, contact free, methods for tracking head and heart motion and tools to simplify access to parallel transmit.
Currently I work with researchers across the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) at the University of Oxford, to facilitate the development and access to advanced imaging methodologies, with a keen interest in simplifying access to ultra-high field (7T) MRI.
DPhil students I have the pleasure to work with:
