PET/MRI, biomarkers and neuroimaging
I am currently a MRes/PhD student in UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging and I have joined the Translational Imaging Group (TIG) in September 2014.
My research will focus in developing an automatic framework to segment and characterize subcortical structures using information from distinct modalities in order to provide better imaging biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases.
I completed my BSc and MSc in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Lisbon, Portugal in 2014.
My MSc project undertaken in King’s College London involved assessing the use of bimodal agents and Partial Volume Correction procedures in enhancing PET images resolution.
In addition, during my studies I did a Research Fellowship at the University of Lisbon which consisted in the analysis of structural and functional MR images in the study of schizophrenia.
