    My research aims to better characterise the consequences of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) using multimodal neuroimaging (fMRI, PET, DTI). This focuses upon resting-state fMRI to investigate network dynamics, dysfunction, and recovery, and how these might predict cognitive and behavioural outcomes. My interest in this work stems from an academic background in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuroimaging, and Psychology, combined with previous professional experiences in NHS clinical trials and general practice. I hope to elucidate the evolving and chronic global consequences of TBI with a view to translating such outcomes into patient care pathways.
