Personal profile

Biography

I am a research fellow in the Department of Neuroscience at the Monash University Central Clinical School. My research uses computational analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data to study brain structure and function. I am particularly interested in understanding how the brain's of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) adapt to damage to maintain cognitive and motor functions for longer.

I have over 10 years of experience in developing techniques for measuring damage to the central nervous system using MRI. I focus on quantifying neuronal damage, altered neurochemistry and physiology using a combination of approaches including diffusion, phase, sodium and functional MRI. I have experience working with preclinical and human 3/7 Tesla MRI systems including sequence optimisation, scanner operation, data management, analysis and informatics for large scale cohort studies.
