Associate Professor of Biomedical Imaging
- Head of Advanced Cardiovascular Image Processing
Over the past 30+ years, I have applied my engineering background to interdisciplinary biomedical research, including mathematical and biophysical modelling, measurement systems and methods design, direct clinical measurements, imaging and estimation using PET, SPECT, and MR, and the clinical and self-assessment approaches. Applications include wide range of clinical specialties in Neurosciences (Neurosurgery, Neurology and Psychiatry), Dermatology, Cardiovascular and Internal Medicine. Over the course of my work I co-authored 7 patent applications, >340 research articles, attracting >13'000 citations, resulting in a h-index of 62 . My most recent focus is in the clinical application of CMR parametric tissue characterisation techniques, in particular T1 mapping, big data and the related applications of artificial intelligence.
