Research Interests

  • Cerebrovascular lesions in ageing
  • Lesion segmentations using machine learning techniques (convolutional neural network, recurrent neural network)
  • Imaging biomarkers for vascular cognitive impairment and dementia
  • Brain structural and functional changes in ageing

 

Contributions to Research Community

  • I published a software package for neuroimaging data post-processing, called CHeBA Neuroimaging Software (CNS). It can be downloaded from here. One of the main modules is UBO Detector (see methodology paper) which is a machine learning-based, fully automated pipeline for the segmentation of white matter hyperintensities (WMH). TOolbox for Probabilistic MApping of Lesions (TOPMAL) is an extention of UBO Detector to map WMH lesions to strategic white matter fibre tracts to enable lesion symptom mapping studies (see TOPMAL paper).
