In his PhD, he’s working on brain structural changes in psychosis and neurodegeneration using a novel neuroimaging tool, qualitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) MRI, which reveals iron and myelin alterations in the brain. At the PNL, he will extend his PhD projects by focusing on T1/T2 ratio imaging, as an indicator of brain myelin and iron changes, in individuals with early psychosis.
