Peter is currently a Royal Society University Research Fellow working on using X-ray phase computed tomography to improve the extraction of quantitative information from photoacoustic tomography data. His principal expertise lies in the mathematical modelling of X-ray and optical imaging systems such as the edge-illumination X-ray phase imaging technique, optical coherence tomography and confocal microscopy.

Prior to joining UCL in 2015, he was based at the University of Western Australia, supported by an Australian Research Council discovery early career research award focussed on the development of models of light interaction with biological tissue with the objective of bringing innovation to biomedical imaging techniques. Prior to this, he worked in the Radiation Physics group at University College London where he developed a quantitative method for performing X-ray phase contrast imaging using incoherent sources.

Available Projects:
