Biography

Anca-Larisa Sandu is a graduate in Medical Bioengineering (1995-2001) from “Gr. T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iasi, Romania. She received a MSc in “Nonlinearity and Self-organization in Complex Systems” from ”Al.I.Cuza” University, Faculty of Physics in the same city (2001-2003). She completed her PhD with the dissertation “MRI measures of brain volume and cortical complexity in clinical groups and during development” under the direction of Prof. Kenneth Hugdahl, Bergen fMRI Group, Department of Biological and Medical Psychology, University of Bergen, Norway (2004-2009). Thereafter she moved to France where she continued her research, as a post-doc, on brain imaging using also VBM and fMRI approaches in Research Unit INSERM – CEA 1000, Neuroimaging & Psychiatry, Paris Sud University (2009-2012). Since 2012 she has been with the University of Aberdeen, where she is a research fellow in Aberdeen Imaging Group.
