Research interests

I am interested in the measurement of cortical, endocortical and subsurface trabecular bone from clinical QCT scans. The eventual aim of this research to to produce a clinical tool for the assessment of future fracture risk from routine QCT scans. I have extended the cortical bone mapping technique pioneered by Graham Treece to provide a measurement of the endocortical region.


I completed an BEng(Hons) in electrical engineering in December 2011 at Canterbury University in New Zealand. In 2012-2013 I worked as a research engineer for ARANZ Geo, before beginning a PhD in information engineering in  October 2013 as a Commonwealth Scholarship Commission scholar for New Zealand. I am a member of the Medical Imaging Group.
