What is your main area(s) of interest/expertise?
The primary focus is on using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to measure blood flow and oxygen availability in organs at risk of developing disease or to investigate the impact of treatments.
What are you working on right now?
The group at the IBME, working with colleagues in the Department of Oncology, have created a new software tool for analysing lung MRI images to assess the effect of potential treatments of Covid-19 on lung function and blood flow. It is able to deal with very low quality images containing large amounts of movement. It has already been used to assess the effect of one drug with the potential to treat Covid-19 patients with severe symptoms.
Why is Oxford a good place to work in this field of research?
Oxford is the best place in the world to do medical research. It has clinical and technical departments integrated with each other on site at one of the biggest hospitals in the UK enabling seamless integration of research with clinical trials. The engagement of clinicians in the NHS with scientists at the university means that practical patient care can be at the forefront of the research.
