A purpose-built brain imaging scanner for awake, freely moving animals

We recently developed a technology that enables the brain of a small animal to be imaged while the animal is free to move. This opens up a new class of experiments aimed at relating more...

Characterising and compensating for partial volume effects in motion-compensated brain imaging of small animals

Partial volume effects resulting from the limited spatial resolution of positron emission tomography (PET) remain a key limitation to accurate quantification of PET image data. This more...

Surface estimation of freely moving animals to enable quantitative neuroimaging

Accurate estimation of the highly non-rigid surface of freely moving animals is necessary to properly quantify data from brain imaging studies in which the animals are allowed to mo more...

Marker-free motion tracking for motion-compensated clinical brain imaging

Even small movements of the human head during positron emission tomography (PET) imaging can dramatically degrade the usability of brain images. In this project you will develop and more...

Developing marker-free head motion tracking for motion-compensated MRI of the brain

Even slight movement of the head during MRI can dramatically degrade the usability of the images. In this project you will develop a novel and highly accurate marker-free motion tra more...

Chiroptical phenomena of pi-conjugated materials

pi-conjugated materials are organic molecules with alternate single and double bond character that provide for their semiconducting properties. For example, pi-conjugated polymers ( more...

The modes of granular segregation

Granular segregation will be studied using dynamic X-ray tomography. This will be a pioneering study into the fundamental mechanisms underlying the phenomenon of segregation. more...

Levee formation in debris flows and avalanches

Levees are a feature of many gravity current flows, yet their formation is not fully understood. This project will track their formation in laboratory scale experiments, and develop more...

Designing new nano-structured materials for solar energy and health

While methods for making nanostructured materials are often slow or energy intensive, self-assembly of nanoscale objects promises to be scalable and low-energy and could thus propel more...
