    Emilia Butters

    University Position
    PhD student


    My work focuses on applying optical neuroimaging (near-infrared spectroscopy and high-density diffuse optical tomography) in dementia to develop biomarkers for use in the clinic. To do so, I will be applying methods such as functional connectivity and graph theory to explore brain oxygenation and metabolic alterations in dementia.
