Sarah Finnegan

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research focusses on breathlessness in patients with chronic lung disease. I am particularly interested in using computational techniques to stratify patient populations and predict treatment outcomes. 

My interest in neuroscience began during my Biomedical Sciences undergraduate at Kings College London, which I furthered with a masters in Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL. I was awarded my DPhil from the University of Oxford, where I focused on ultra-high resolution fMRI at 7 Tesla and the visual system. 

Now I combine my interest in cutting edge technology and analysis with large patient populations to investigate why is there little agreement between clinical measures of lung function and breathlessness perception.  

As well as this research I also run our public engagement programme and am a keen science communicator.
