Fellowships take scientists across the globe

2 November 2017

Dr Phillip Ward, a research fellow at Monash Biomedical Imaging, is using biomedical imaging to measure how blood vessels respond to changes in brain function, whilst also measuring the amount of oxygen being metabolised. 

He will study new techniques at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre. His study mission will also help him acquire the knowledge and skills required to bring MR-based oxygen and blood-flow imaging into Victoria.

Dr Ward has just added another award to his considerable portfolio. His paper 'Vein segmentation using shape-based Markov Random Fields'. won 3rd place in the Student Paper Prize, International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging. Over his candidature Phil has won a number of awards and honours including the best poster at Innovation Showcase, FIT's 3MT Winner, and Australian Computer Society Award in Computer Science. Phil submitted his PHD thesis for examination earlier this year and is currently working as a FIT Post Doctoral Research Fellow. View Phil's 2013 Monash 3MT presentation.
