Biography. I studied Physics at Cambridge and did a Masters in Medical Physics at Aberdeen. My PhD thesis was entitled “NMR Flow Imaging”, supervised by Jim Hutchison at Aberdeen. I then moved to the University of Bremen as a post-doc and later had a tenure-track position. I was head of MR at the Max-Planck-Institute for Cognitive and Behavioural Sciences in Leipzig before moving to the Donders Institute at the Radboud University Nijmegen in 2001. I am a past director of the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging and a founding Director of the Erwin L. Hahn Institute at the University Duisburg-Essen. I am a Past-President of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and an External Scientific Member of the Max-Plank-Society. I am the Principal Investigator
