Brain physiology and Cancer Imaging

I work on creating MRI methods for calibrating the BOLD signal and for obtaining quantitative physiological information about the human brain. The research has focussed on using respiratory challenges to elucidate aspects of functional MRI signals so that accurate mathematical models can be constructed. My group is working towards the clinical translation of these emerging methods, and thus we concentrate on working at 3T, using short, patient-friendly paradigms.

I am also very involved with teaching at Oxford. I am a senior trainer in the Medical Sciences Division Teaching Skills programme, I recently obtained teaching qualification with the ungainly title of PGDipLaTHE, and I am a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am the thread co-ordinator for physics on the Biomedical Sciences undergraduate course, and deliver all of the lectures for that thread, and provide lectures on MRI for the Medical Physics option in the Department of Physics.
