Supervision Statement

  • I am pleased to offer a $15,000 top-up stipend to suitably qualified local and international graduate students who are awarded a graduate research scholarship (e.g. APA, IPRS) to undertake a PhD at the University of Melbourne under my supervision. The stipend is in addition to the living allowance provided by the research scholarship. I can supervise candidates enrolling through the Melbourne School of Engineering or the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

    I am enthusiastic about supporting both computational projects aimed at developing new methodologies to study connectomic data, as well as clinical projects aiming to understand mental illness with brain imaging techniques. I am particularly keen to hear from talented graduate students with a desire to apply their computational or mathematical skills to understand the human brain in health and disease.

    Before contacting me, please check that you meet the relevant entry requirements to enrol at the University of Melbourne.
