Research Interests

In my research I use advanced neuroimaging techniques, mainly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to investigate how genetics and lifestyle measures affect human brain structure and function. My main research question is how biological factors influence brain ageing and in turn the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases. A better understanding of those factors and the processes in the brain that are most vulnerable to ageing will allow us to develop interventions aimed at preventing or delaying the development of neurodegenerative diseases.

I am based at the Big Data Institute and collaborate closely with groups at the new Wellcome Trust Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) and Department of Psychiatry.

Robust Science

I am particularly interested in promoting Open Science and improving research methods to make the results of scientific research more robust.

Please get in touch if you would like to know more about my research, are interested in collaborations or have any questions regarding robust science.
