Dr Gordon Waiter
PhD CSci MIPEM CPhys MInstP
Dr. Waiter graduated from the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, in 1989 with a BSc (Hons) in Physical Sciences majoring in Physics. He then moved to Dundee University, Department of Medical Physics as Research Assistant, to develop MR imaging test objects. He returned to Aberdeen in 1991, this time to the University of Aberdeen to undertake a PhD in Medical Physics, under the supervision of Dr. M. Foster
He joined the staff of Aberdeen University in 1996 as a research fellow working in collaboration with the university Department of BioMedical Physics and NHS Department of Cardiology to develop image analysis methods for the detection of hibernating myocardium.
In 2001 Dr. Waiter joined the School of Psychology to help initiate functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) on a new 1.5T research dedicated scanner at the University of Aberdeen.
In 2004 he joined the Department of Radiology (now part of the Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre) to continue the development of functional magnetic resonance imaging in Aberdeen. His work has included paradigm design, data analysis, data acquisition, quality control and image analysis.
Dr. Waiter was appopinted Senior Lecturer in 2009.
Dr. Waiter's main areas of interest are in the developing and aging brain particularly autism and Alzheimer’s disease. However, he has also participated in a number of other studies including face processing, cognitive neuroscience, self processing, psychology, depression and others.
He is one of a number of local experts on the analysis of functional MRI data and part of a larger Brain Imaging Group that includes a wide range of specialties including physicists, radiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists etc.
Dr. Waiter is the course co-ordinator for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging deeper study (BP5503) of the BioMedical Physics/Medical Imaging MSc, where he teaches fMRI theory and image analysis techniques as well as cardaic MR imaging. He also teaches Statistical Paramegnetic Mapping (SPM) on the Medical Image Processing and Analysis deeper study (BP5505).
