Welcome. Here you will find details of some of my latest research developing computational approaches to neurology.

Feel free to browse the News section for the latest updates.

28 Feb 2018 - New Paper

Our latest study "The impact of epilepsy surgery on the structural connectome and its relation to outcome" has now been published in NeuroImage: Clinical. Link here if you're interested:

21 Feb 2018 - Postdoc position available

I have a postdoc position available in my group relating EEG features to epilepsy surgery outcome using signal processing, machine learning, and modelling. Further details can be found here : deadline for applications is March 22nd.

23 Dec 2017 - Updates

A couple of quick updates. Nadia da Silva has joined us as a PhD student working on imaging & modelling of brain injury. Welcome Nadia! A new opportunity for an MRC funded PhD is a available in Liverpool in collaboration with Dr Simon Keller. Link here to apply.

Finally, I will be recruiting at least two Wellcome Trust funded RAs next year applying machine learning techniques to EEG in the context of epilepsy surgery. Advert will be up in the New Year. Contact me if you are interested.

4 May 2017 - New Paper

Our work on seizure onset patterns is now online at PLoS CB :

18 April 2017 - New Paper

Our work investigating transient oscillations following stimulation is now published online here :

19 February 2017 - PhD studentship available

Fully funded PhD studentship available at Newcastle University in the School of Computing Science, in collaboration with the Institute of Neuroscience. The project will involve computational modelling, complex network analysis and neuroimaging of brain injury.

Funding covers fees at UK/EU rate, and tax free stipend for three years from September 2017 (start date may be negotiable). For further details please contact Dr. Peter Taylor:

5 January 2017 - New Paper

Our work investigating high resolution structural brain networks is now published online here :

23 December 2016 - New Paper

Our work predicting surgical outcomes in epilepsy is now available online here at Brain:

4 December 2016 - Computational Neurology 2017

I am co-organising a two day conference on the topic of computational neurology. We have a great line up of speakers now confirmed. Registration is now open, click here for more details.

4 December 2016 - New web site

Hello World! I have finally found some time to create a web site for my academic work. I intend to keep this updated with my latest research.
