Hi, my name is Yannick and I am a third year PhD candidate at the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Smart Medical Imaging at King’s College London and Imperial College London where I’m being supervised by Prof Jo Hajnal and Shaihan Malik. I’m working on motion correction techniques for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and recently I got to be a visiting researcher at Stanford University, which I am excited to share more about!

At Stanford, I joined Prof Kawin Setsompop’ s lab to work on related motion correction projects and from day one I was part of the team. One of the great things of my internship was the chance to work within a very diverse team with people from different backgrounds, learning about their projects. At the end of the internship, I even had the chance to present my work at an ISMRM workshop in Sedona, which is a conference focussing acquisition and reconstruction techniques in MRI.

Over the course of my internship, I also had the opportunity to explore California. From the stunning coastline to the bustling landscapes, I was able to visit many of the state’s landmarks and attractions. As you can see below, I had the chance to explore San Francisco, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Yosemite and so much more!

The internship would not have been possible without the support of Prof Kawin Setsompop, as well as the CDT, with a special thanks to Valeria De Marco, Prof Alistair Young and Jo Hajnal. They provided me with the perfect infrastructure and support to undertake this.

Overall it was an amazing experience that allowed me to learn and grow both professionally and personally. I made good friends and worked in an amazing team with very different backgrounds, as well as being able to explore California.
