I currently hold a NIHR Clinician Scientist Award at the University of Manchester. My research is focused on the development, validation and eventual translation of advanced multi-paramentric brain imaging in children. Part of this translation entails the development of computerised decision support systems to facilitate advanced imaging provision in clinical practice. Clinically I practice as an Honorary Consultant Paediatric Neuroradiologist in the department of Academic Department of Paediatric Radiology at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I lead the paediatric neuro-radiological imaging unit in one of Europe’s largest children’s hospitals. As well as my academic work I am also heavily engaged in the provision of expert neuro-radiological assessment in child protection issues. I routinely provide evidence to the court on such matters and provide paediatric neuroradiological opinions at the joint Manchester/Liverpool Child Protection Peer Review meetings.
I was BSNR du Boulay Professor from 2012 to 2014 and a previous chair of the Academic Sub-Committee.
