Research description

I work in the hyperpolarized-13C imaging group in the Department of Radiology and apply computational methods to the analysis of MR images of tumours. I have in the past specialised in pharmacokinetic modelling of DCE-MRI data. My more recent work involves implementation of image registration techniques for the correlation of histology slide content with MR data.
