  • Faculty of Engineering Science

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Manchester before completing my PhD on dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI in cancer at the Institute of Cancer Research in London. I then moved to the NMR Research Unit at the Institute of Neurology, UCL, where I worked on a range of MRI techniques, including relaxometry methods and diffusion MRI tractography methods, which I applied to multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. In 2001 I moved to the Department of Imaging Science and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Manchester, where I continued to develop and apply quantitative MRI methods in a range of conditions, including cancer, neurology and lung disease. Starting as a research fellow, I gained promotion to full professor in 2007. I moved to take up my current position within UCL’s Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) in 2019. In addition to my academic work, I founded Bioxydyn in 2009 to translate quantitative MRI methods into healthcare, and I continue to be a director of the company. 

Research Summary

I lead the Quantitative Imaging Group (QIG) at the Centre for Medical Image Computing and am affiliated with the UCL Queen Square Multiple Sclerosis Group. QIG's research focuses on the development of imaging biomarkers using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Examples of current methods under development include markers of tissue microstructure, blood brain barrier permeability, perfusion, hypoxia and ventilation. We apply these methods is a broad range of disease areas, including neurology, lung disease, and cancer.

Much of my research activity is highly translational. In addition to working closely with clinical colleagues, I am involved in the creation and development of spin-out companies. A good example of this is the SME Bioxydyn, which provides contract research services to the pharmaceutical industry and academia.
