Research and Employment Details

2014-    Professor of NeuroImaging, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford
2003-    Head of Structural Image Analysis, FMRIB Centre, University of Oxford
Research interests: statistical shaped-based anatomical segmentation of multiple brain structures leading to non-linear registration; simulation of the MRI processes for studying artefacts; joint estimation and correction of motion-based fMRI artefacts; EEG/MEG/fMRI integration modelling. Responsibilities: supervising students and post-doctoral scientists in collaborative research projects; software development and maintenance for FSL package utilities and libraries.
2002Post-Doctoral Scientist, NeuroImaging Group, Howard Florey Insitute, University of Melbourne
Research interests: non-linear registration of MRI; EEG/fMRI integration; database contruction and analysis of structural MRI sets; modelling of MRI processes and artefacts; modelling and inference in group studies.
1998-2001 Post-Doctoral Scientist, Image Analysis Group, FMRIB Centre, University of Oxford
Research interests: registration of MRI-MRI and fMRI-MRI; motion correction for fMRI; phase unwrapping; interpolation; spatial clustering and statistical analysis; correcting distortion of EPI images and the impact on statistical inference. Have written software for linear registration, motion correction, phase unwrapping and correction of EPI distortions. Extensive involvement in building up a local software development environment including a 4D image manipulation library. All software has been extensively tested and made freely available via the internet.
1995-1998Robotics Research Group, University of Oxford
Thesis entitled Saliency in Image Analysis under the supervision of Prof. Sir Michael Brady. The research looks at shape representations based on local symmetries. It deals with methods for extraction and decomposition for 2D shapes, with occlusion reasoning. Previous research experience in computer vision includes real-time tracking, object localisation and recognition, plus noise analysis of low-level image invariants.
