Having studied Electrical Engineering and Biochemistry at the University of Western Australia, I am fascinated in how technology can be applied to solve medical problems. Specifically, I aim to develop image processing algorithms for several medical image modalities (including MRI, PET and CT) that provide important biomarkers to assist clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, and hence improve the outcomes and quality of life of patients.
