Alasdair is a PhD student working in the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences at The University of Edinburgh. He graduated with BSc(Hons) Neuroscience 1st class degree from the University of St Andrews, followed by MSc Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh. Alasdair's research methods utilise advanced MRI techniques to assess blood flow and pulsatility in the human brain. Within the small vessel disease research group, he processes the blood flow and pulsatility data from Mild Stroke Study 3 using 2D flow MRI methods - with hope of expanding his future research scope to utilising 4D flow methods on clinical patients.
Alasdair was awarded the Data Blitz Prize at the Fondation Leducq 5th Transatlantic Network Meeting for his presentation on 4D flow MRI.
