I am a scientist and communicator


Have you wondered– about the world around you?

I’m fortunate to say that is my job. I’m an imaging scientist at the University of Calgary. I’ve done science on 4 continents and at some fantastic places including Oxford University, St. Andrews University and Dartmouth Collage. I run the Experimental Imaging Centre at the U of C.

Wonder what the header is?

It is an MRI of a mouse brain, imaged at a very high magnetic field (9.4 Tesla), showing parts of the  top of the brain (cortex and hippocampus). We often image mice to study how the brain works. A key point is the resolution of 37.5 x 37.5 x 250µm per point. Thanks to Max Hamilton, one of my students, for producing this image.
