My undergraduate study was in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, followed by extensive periods in the semiconductor and automation industries prior to moving into the area of clinical engineering while completing an MSc programme in medical imaging. I gained further experience within the clinical setting during my time with Siemens Medical Ireland in the department of Radiation Therapy and Magnetic Resonance Imaging before returning to complete a PhD in Experimental Psychology focusing on neuroimaging at TCD. At present I am fortunate to be a postdoctoral researcher in Professor Mary Cannon’s research team in RCSI, focusing on the application of structural and diffusion imaging techniques in the area of “Adolescent Brain Development”. My interests include multimodal imaging techniques, combining functional brain imaging with the underlying neuroanatomy to investigate brain connectivity applying techniques such as white matter fibre tractography.
