Research Summary

I am an MRI physicist with a strong clinical research background and extensive experience working in clinical environments. I have a PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a German university diploma in solid-state physics and a certificate in medical physics with focus on medical radiation physics.

Since August 2016, I am working as the technician and MRI physicist at Birkbeck-UCL Centre for Neuroimaging (BUCNI). My role comprises scanner maintenance and imaging support, scientific consulting for researchers, development of new research devices and research software for all kinds of MRI areas, such as prospective motion correction, (rt)fMRI, physiological stimulation and logging. My expertise for this role is based on my main Post-Doc projects, which were real-time functional imaging (rtfMRI) in different environments, including real time pipelines for physiological monitoring and processing, fMRI and head motion prediction.

My second research focus is on developing software allowing fast and automated image processing – vital in the surgical theatre and valuable for MRI research in general. In the past, I worked on MRIST (MR Imaging and Spectroscopy Toolbox): a processing pipeline, which I initiated during my PhD in Frankfurt/Main. It provides a Linux based framework to control and process MRI data using research software (SPM, FSL, MATLAB) from single subject studies to large-scale projects. Additionally, I developed different SPM toolboxes to support intra-operative fMRI data processing.
