My research is in the area of medical X-ray imaging, focussing on the assessment of image quality and the optimisation of image quality with respect to radiation dose. I also have interests in image analysis, and am currently investigating methods of quantifying blood flow within the heart from X-ray angiography.

I am the Programme Lead for the MSc Medical Imaging course.

Module leader for MEDP5331: Medical X-ray Imaging & MEDP5333: Computer Programming with MATLAB.

Widening Participation: Careers Academy mentor at Garforth Academy for students in years 12 and 13.
