She is currently working as a PostDoc at the UCL Institute of Neurology under Dr Claudia Wheeler-Kingshott and has continued to pursue research in the field of quantitative MRI, with a focus on multiple sclerosis. Her recent work has included the implementation of Diffusion Tensor Imaging of the optic nerves at 3.0T as well as quantitative relaxometry and qMT imaging, lesion probability mapping in MS, and most recently the investigation of parallel RF transmission in MTR mapping in the brain.
