Research:                                                   I was fortunate to undertake my research under the guidance of Professor the Lord

                                                                      Darzi of Denham. At the time St Mary's NHS Trust and Imperial College had the only

                                                                      open configuration Interventional MRI Unit in the country. My research

                                                                      involved  evaluating the potential of this technology with regards to intra-operative MRI

                                                                     guidance of surgical procedures, development of novel imaging techniques for the

                                                                     diagnosis of surgical conditions, and the development of MR guided thermotherapy

                                                                      techniques. Due to its pioneering and unique nature, this work resulted in several

                                                                      international collaborations, many paper presentations in the UK and abroad, and a

                                                                      number of published papers.
