    Research interests (short)

    I have a background in MRI Physics, which over time this has developed into a wider interest in developing and applying new combinations of imaging techniques to measure and understand the human brain across spatial and temporal scales. My main focus over the last few years has been on combined measurements of electrophysiology via EEG and functional MRI and quantitative structural MRI.

    I have a particular interest in the application of these methods in the study of epilepsy. Modern neuroimaging play a number of vital roles in this context. They can be used to non-invasively identify (map) epileptogenic brain regions. However, they can also go far beyond this and be used to measure the complex interactions between brain areas and how these relate to the unwanted synchronous brain activity found in epilespy.

    Crucially both the mapping and characterisation of brain dynamics can inform and assess treatment approaches for example via surgery or electrical stimulation.
