Research Interests

Current interests within research management and administration:
- Research support from cradle to grave including fundraising, budgeting, grant management, reporting, ethics, data protection and contract negotiation.
- People management and career development.
- Financial reporting and controlling in a hospital environment.

Previously, I have worked with methodological development and clinical implementation of perfusion MRI using Arterial Spin Labellig (ASL).
