I currently hold  a National Instituate for Health Research Clinician Scientist Award at the University of Manchester.  My research is focused on the development, validation and eventual translation of advanced multi-paramentric brain imaging in children.  Part of this translation entails the development of computerised decision support systems to facilitate advanced imaging provision in clinical practice.

Clinically I practice as an Honorary Consultant Paediatric Neuroradiologist in the department of Academic Department of Paediatric Radiology at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.  I lead the paediatric neuro-radiological imaging unit in one of Europe's largest children's hospitals.

As well as my academic work I am also heavily engaged in the provision of expert neuro-radiological assessment in child protection issues.  I routinely provide evidence to the court on such matters and provide paediatric neuroradiological opinions at the joint Manchester/Liverpool Child Protection Peer Review meetings.


I hold a Bachelor of Science degree (with honours) from University College London in Medical Physics with Basic Medical Sciences.

I have a Medical degree from the University of Manchester.

I have also been awarded a PhD in Medicine/Computer Science from the University of Manchester
