I was a research associate within the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, King's College London.
I worked in Rene Botnar's research group (website)
, and collaborated intensively with the HaeMod group.
My main research interest was on image analysis techniques for cardiovascular disease.
Within the NIAGARA project we developed imaging-based models of atherosclerosis, using novel MRI techniques.
This involved vessel wall acquisition and segmentation, and the study of plaque composition. My
PhD project was mainly focused on the automatic analysis and segmentation of atherosclerotic plaque tissue components using
machine learning techniques (voxel classification), and I continued this work at KCL.
My research within the HaeMod group focused on the analysis of techniques for MRI-based measurements of
pulse wave velocity (J Cardiov Magnetic Resonance, 2017
). I also worked on deriving vascular anatomy and flow properties from MRI data
to subsequently use them for 1D modelling of heamodynamical parameters; e.g.
to estimate central blood pressure (Circulation, 2017
