Chair of Neuroimaging Pharmacology & Therapeutics


Personal Statement

I am Professor of neuroimaging and neuroscience in the Institute of Systems, Molecular and Integrative Biology (ISMIB), University of Liverpool. My main research interests are the use of advanced quantitative neuroimaging techniques, mainly magnetic resonance imaging, to understand aberrant brain mechanisms in neurological disorders, help improve imaging diagnostic accuracy and identify reliable imaging prognostic markers of medical and neurosurgical treatment. Epilepsy in particular is of primary interest.

I am Director of the Brain Research using Advanced Imaging in Neurology (BRAIN) lab.
