The aim of my fellowship is to predict the progression of depression and schizophrenia in individual patients using neuroimaging data. To do this, we will make use of the advanced computational models for functional data used and developed by the TNU, and combine these with recent advances in deep variational inference. This is work with Klaas Enno Stephan at the TNU and Ender Konukoglu at Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, ETH Zürich.
I obtained my DPhil at the University of Oxford [2011-2015], working on modelling subject variability in resting-state functional connectivity. During that time, and during the subsequent two year postdoc [2016-2018], I was based at FMRIB, in the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroscience, under the supervision of Steve Smith and Mark Woolrich. For a more detailed overview of that work, please see my FMRIB webpage.
