Research Interests

 

I am interested in understanding human brain network organization from neuroimaging data in health and disease. My work builds on methods and concepts from physics and bioinformatics and applies them to fundamental problems in neuroscience. In particular, I am interested in the interplay between network structure and function in both health and disease.

Current Research

Current work combines neuroimaging and clinical data in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia. In order to better measure individual differences in response to novel drugs for Alzheimer’s disease I investigate how these brain disorders relate to the breakdown of the brain as a network. The research is supported by the WisTa LAboratories Ltd futured TAURx Research project.
