Biography

Nafeesa Nazlee is a PhD candidate in Medical Imaging at the University of Aberdeen. Her PhD thesis is on the brain cortical complexity and it's association with cognitive performance and life-course factors across adulthood. Nafeesa's background is in Physics and Mathematic, having MSc in Medical Physics from Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Pakistan. After studies, she worked as researcher in Mass Spectrometry lab at Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology (PINSTECH). Afterwards she joined Epidemiology Group at University of Aberdeen and assisted in various research projects. During this time, she developed research experience in range of topics related to quality of life and individual response towards treatment with focus on modifiable risk factors.

Nafeesa's research interest lies in regional brain of healthy people with particular interest in their cognitive skills and how the life-course factors may influence this association. Currently, Nafeesa is analysing brain MRI data from UKBioBank Imaging Study to determine the regional variations with age and gender.
