Curriculum vitae

Scientific interests

My main scientific interest is kinetic modelling of nuclear imaging data. In particular, I am interested in evaluating the methodologies and assumptions that are commonly used when quantifying brain PET data. I aim to develop new models and model variations with the potential to improve the outcome of PET neuroimaging studies.
