Richard is a clinician-scientist interested in the dynamics of large-scale neuronal networks during human development, genetic epilepsies and good coffee. Currently he is working towards his PhD at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL, trading in night shifts at the neonatal ICU for caffeine-fueled marathons in front of Matlab.


Sarah is a neurologist in training who has just finished her PhD at the Institute of Neurology working in induced pluripotent stem cell models of neurodegenerative conditions. That is when she is not out trying to swim across the Channel. She loves London (although does not always admit it), but is about to return to Tubingen for more exciting science.


Massih completed his neuroimaging PhD in Canada (which means he is still terrible at pronouncing ‘Bath’, even though he loves it there). Currently he is expanding his expertise to other modalities to better characterise central pain mechanisms in healthy populations at UCL. He loves good food almost as much as moaning about how none of the Persian restaurants in London live up to his expectations.
