My research interests are primarily in the area of radiation dose optimisation, image quality analysis and adipose tissue quantification in Computed Tomography and general radiography. In 2017, I completed a Translational Medicine PhD in University College Dublin and have presented this research at a number of international conferences. PhD Research Topic: Optimising Computed Tomography of obese paediatric patients. I am Primary Supervisor to ten undergraduate radiography researchers and a member of the steering committee for Optimax, an international summer research school for students of many disciplines, primarily radiography and medical physics. I believe research is imperative for the professional development of radiography especially given the rapid evolution of the technology underlying diagnostic imaging.
