Further information

I received my PhD from the University of Paris XI-Orsay in 2006, where I worked on structural and diffusion imaging of Huntington's disease and neuronal grafts under the supervision of Prof. Philippe Remy and Dr Philippe Hantraye. Since then, I have been working at the FMRIB centre, Oxford, first as a post-doctoral researcher and now as a research fellow.

Being at the interface between basic neuroscience, methodological imaging development and clinical application is really what I enjoy the most. My body of work focuses on translational research from imaging methods to applied human neuroscience, such as brain maturation and ageing, and with a particular emphasis on neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease, movement disorders and motor neuron disease).

I was recently awarded a 5-year MRC Career Development Fellowship to work on the structural and functional connectivity of the basal ganglia in health and movement disorders (Huntington's and Parkinson's disease) using high resolution MRI.
