I have also assisted on, and completed my MSc whilst assisting on, Hypoxia research across 2 persons PhD; where my focus was on using Quantatative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) to map changes in ferromagnetic materials across Normoxia and Hypoxia. I also did a BSc project on Bloodflow Differences between Hemispheres in the ACC and PCC using Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL). I have experience using and processing several MRI modalities (ASL, QSM, BOLD, MRI, and others). I have also assisted in part on other projects (MRI, Behavioural, and Cognitive).
