Researcher biography

I develop methods to integrate multiple imaging modalities that have the potential to be used as early biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.

To achieve this aim I am combining high resolution quantitative imaging (susceptibility,  T1, T2*), functional MRI (fMRI), and electroencephalography (EEG) with the goal to understand the relationship between functional networks and to work towards identifying early biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.

Exploiting the high signal levels of ultra-high field 7 Tesla MRI we investigate and quantify disease processes by constructing very high resolution digital MRI atlases (http://www.imaging.org.au/Human7T/Human7T) to better understand structural changes on a population level and to transfer this knowledge to analyses in single individuals.

Further information is available in my publically accessible conference posters and talks.
