µ-VIS Core Team
Phil BasfordDr Basford is a Computer Scientists and is leading the development of the supporting computation workflows and hardware needed to enable the processing of the data acquired using 3D X-ray Histology imaging and 3D image data processing.
µ-VIS Core Team
Fernando Alvarez BorgesDr Alvarez-Borges main research fields are Geotechnics and Geomechanics, and uses CT to study the interaction between building foundations and the soil and rock on which they are built.
µ-VIS Core Team
Ehsan NazemiDr. Nazemi's main responsibilities include, but not limited to, running X-ray scans and reconstruction, data processing, caring X-ray machines, and other aspects of day-to-day operations.
µ-VIS Core Team
Stephanie RobinsonDr Robinson is a post-doctoral research fellow who works on 3D imaging and functional modelling of microlymphatic networks in both clinical and pre-clinical samples. Although her focus is on pulmonary networks, she also works on dermal and pancreatic lymphatic networks.
Director
Ian SinclairProf. Sinclair’s core interests lie in micromechanics of failure in materials and structures. This currently involves extensive use of high resolution computed tomography methods. A wide range of interdisciplinary projects include applications of CT for biomedical, crop science, earth science and heritage projects.
Director
Mark MavrogordatoDr Mavrogordato oversees the centre’s commercial activities, and has a keen interest in the development of custom in situ testing experiments.
Associate
