I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Clinical Neuroinformatics at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences (University of Cambridge).
I work in a team led by Dr Tim Rittman, Professor Zoe Kourtzi and Professor Guy Williams as part of a Wellcome Trust funded Innovator Award.
My work involves analysing clinical data collected directly from patients coming into memory clinics at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and then applying machine learning models to synthesize such data to determine markers for early dementia detection. You can find more about the QMIN-MC study online and on main news outlets (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-57934589). This work at the intersection of healthcare-AI and precision medicine could have an important impact on the diagnosis and prioritization of treatments for those with limited access to specialist facilities due to geographical location and socio-economic factors.
After completion of a BA in Psychology and Neuroscience and an MPhil in Medical Sciences (Computational Psychiatry) at the University of Cambridge, I moved to London for my PhD in Neuroimaging (King's College London). My PhD research explored the neural and cognitive correlates of Parkinson’s Disease psychosis. In my doctoral work, I employed multimodal imaging techniques (resting state fMRI, structural, and diffusion imaging) and combined them with network neuroscience, transcriptomics, and receptor maps approaches.
