Postdoctoral Training Fellow

I am a Postdoctoral Training Fellow working on implementing latest MR image reconstruction techniques to develop fast volumetric imaging for MR Linac. Specifically, the focus of the project is the fast mapping of relaxation parameters to characterise hypoxia in tumours to determine their resistance to radiotherapy treatment.

I am a PhD student working on techniques for MRI-guided radiotherapy. My project aim is to develop and implement methods for generating respiratory-resolved (4D) synthetic CT images in lung that are ready for online applications with a 1.5-Tesla MR Linac.
