Medical Imaging

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training

I was an undergraduate student of Christ Church, University of Oxford, where I conducted a final year research project on macrocycle synthesis under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Faulkner. My research interests involve the synthesis and functionalisation of novel ligands for metal-based imaging methodologies, including PET, SPECT and MRI. I hope that this PhD programme will allow me to gain an insight into all aspects of medical imaging, as well as gain skills that can be applicable to a variety of situations, both laboratory-based and otherwise.
