I am a PhD student in the School of Computer Science and Informatics with a background in Physics. My research topic is on 'non-invasive characterisation of brain cancer tissue microstructure from MRI using Deep Learning'. I have an interest in Machine Learning, Statistical Descriptors, and enjoy working on problems that have overlap between Physics and Computer Science. 

My PhD is part of the Interdisciplinary Precision Oncology Cardiff Hub (IPOCH).
