Personal profile


Dr Kevin Aquino completed his PhD in 2012 at the school of physics at the University of Sydney and was a research associate working under Professor Peter Robinson. He then worked as a research fellow at Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, at the University of Nottingham. Kevin returned to Australia in 2017 as a research fellow at Monash University in the Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences. 

Kevin’s research focuses on using models built from first principles in physiology to understand healthy brain function. Combined with neuroimaging, this is a powerful approach as properties in these models can be quantified and thus used to probe and classify physiological quantities in healthy brain function and disease. One key example was to uncover the spatial nature of blood flow by building a theoretical model and testing this through highly resolved fMRI in humans.
