Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

I am a physicist working as a postdoctoral researcher within the Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group (CFARG)/ Respiratory X-ray Imaging Laboratory (REXIL). I am currently focused on working on X-ray Velocimetry (XV), a novel technique for measuring lung function using X-ray imaging. This project is in collaboration with 4D medical.
