Personal profile


I am currently a Post Doctoral Research Associate, supervised by Dr Jan Novak, working in the AIPNI (Artificial Intelligence in Pediatric NeuroImaging) lab. I am a member of the Aston Institute of Health and Neurodevelopment.

Research Interests

Understanding consequences of neurological diseases on the still-developing brain using cognitive neuroscience methods: Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Magnetoencephalography and Neuropsychology.

I am interested in understanding brain and cognitive development in children, using neuroimaging and neuropsychological methods, and how these are influenced by the presence of chronic neurological disease. I have a keen interest in developing this further with the added value that longitudinal data can bring.

I will use this knowledge to develop early warning systems and predictive models of a wide range of clinical and functional outcomes which matter to families.  These will become clinical support tools to inform treatment, and management in these populations to maximise the developmental outcomes of these children.

My current and previous PostDoc experience fits into into this ‘vision’:

  • Paediatric Brain Tumour Diagnosis – Performing ROI analysis using MRI and deep learning to predict tumour diagnosis from in-vivo imaging, ahead of histopathology. Providing this information ahead of time will influence decision making and clinical management.
  • MEGMOG – Investigating the use of MEG as a potential novel biomarker in MOG-antibody associated disease. Identifying changes in functional brain networks as neural correlates of disease severity and cognitive outcomes.
  • PROBIT - Predicting long-term outcomes of pediatric brain insult using MRI. Developing transdiagnostic models which can predict outcomes that matter to families including academic achievement, behavioural difficulties and cognition.
