Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

I am a Neuroimaging PhD student (3rd year), enrolled on the International Doctoral Training Partnership between the University of Nottingham's Precision Imaging Beacon (School of Medicine), and The University of Adelaide's Australian Institute of Machine Learning (AIML) (School of Computer Science). I am currently based in Australia.

My interests lie in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Medical Image Analysis. I am currently developing 'Anatomically-based Deep Learning Models for Improved Neuroimaging Analysis'.

I graduated as a First-Class Honours Masters student in 'Mechanical Engineering with Biomechanics' at The University of Sheffield in 2020, and was subsequently awarded a Joint Award research scholarship by The University of Adelaide to conduct my current PhD.

I’m on a joint PhD between the University of Nottingham (UK) and the University of Adelaide (Australia), and I am working on using AI, specifically deep learning, to analyse brain MRI scans.

My project focuses on combining the knowledge of human anatomy with deep learning models, to improve the segmentation of the brain into its multiple structures. I am particularly focused on extracting the blood vessels from the brain, which are often ignored. Understanding where vessels are in the brain can help to identify anomalies like cerebral microbleeds, and benefit the analysis of blood flow in imaging types such as Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL).
