I am a research associate within the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, King's College London.
I work in Rene Botnar's research group (website)
, and collaborate intensively with the HaeMod group.
My main research interest is on image analysis techniques for cardiovascular disease.
Within the NIAGARA project we aim to develop imaging-based models of atherosclerosis, using novel MRI techniques.
This involves 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 am continuing this work at KCL.
My research within the HaeMod group currently mainly concerns analysis techniques for MRI-based
Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) measurements. Secondly, I work on deriving the vascular anatomy and flow properties from MRI data
that are subsequently used for 1D modelling of heamodynamical parameters.
