I am a postdoctoral researcher for the EU Lifebrain Project working jointly between the Department of Psychiatry and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging. My research combines multi-modal neuroimaging techniques to study risk and resilience for cognitive decline in ageing. I use structural, diffusion tensor, and functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate how large-scale connections in the brain vary with age and cognitive status, with a specific focus on how they may be affected by genetic and vascular risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease.
I completed my undergraduate degree at the National University of Singapore and MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. I received a Clarendon Scholarship at Keble College, Oxford and obtained my DPhil (Psychiatry) in 2016. My doctoral research in the Translational Neuroimaging Group revealed early impairments in the brain's vascular health in young adults at a genetic risk for developing Alzheimer's disease.
