Biography

I have been actively involved in research since 1991, initially in the field of solid state physics (spintronics and nanomagnetics) and since 1995 in medical imaging physics. My main areas of interest lie in the development of novel nuclear magnetic resonance imaging techniques, including both hardware developments (e.g. radiofrequency coil design for Sodium-MRI, novel system design for imaging rigid biological materials) and devising new imaging pulse sequences. I also have an active program of research in diagnostic ultrasound imaging. I have extensive experience of pre-clinical imaging research from working in neuroscience institutes in the Universities of Glasgow and Dublin (I set-up the only Irish-based 7T MRI facility in the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience in 2005). My current role as Director of Imaging Physics in the Centre for Advanced Medical Imaging (CAMI), St. James's Hospital, is providing scientific support to clinical research studies spanning neuroscience, oncology and cardiovascular specialities, in particular developing quantitative approaches using novel MRI and ultrasound techniques.
