Dr Maria Prats-Sedano
Maria is a research assistant in the Lewy Bodies Disorders Research Group of the Department of Psychiatry. She is the study coordinator on the Multimodal imaging and computational modelling of Dementia with Lewy bodies (MILOS) Project. She holds a BSc Hons Degree in Psychology and a PhD (Doctor Europaeus) in Neuroscience awarded by the University of Padova (Italy).
She has experience working as a Clinical Neuropsychologist and researcher in international neurorehabilitation and research centres with patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
Clinical Research Fellows
Dr Elizabeth McKiernan
Elizabeth is a medical doctor and an Alzheimer's Society Clinical Research Fellow working primarily on the use of 7T MRI to investigate dementia with Lewy bodies and Alzheimer's disease.
Miss Coco Newton
Coco holds a BSc First Class in biomedical science from King's College London. Her PhD combines immersive virtual reality tests of navigation with 7 tesla ultra-high-field neuroimaging to explore the earliest structural and functional brain changes due to Alzheimer's disease.
Mr Yuet Yan Bryan Yau
Bryan holds a BSc First Class in Physics from University of London, Royal Holoway and a Mmath from Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. His PhD includes developing novel multivariate imaging analysis methodology and applying them to MEG and EEG data sets for studying dementia with Lewy bodies and Alzheimer's disease.
ARUK East Network Centre
Dr Min Huey Ong
Min is the administrator for Alzheimer's Research UK East Network Centre, providing administrative support to Dr Li Su in running the East Network Centre. She graduated from National University of Singapore with a Bachelor degree in Arts and Social Sciences.
She completed her PhD at Loughborough University and her research focus was on evaluating organisational changes in adopting a new technology.
Mr Vlad Morozan
Vlad is an Associated Researcher in the AICN Group working on computational modelling that could explain the mechanisms behind recurrent visual hallucinations in DLB. He is a medical doctor at the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania, where he has worked with mice exploring animal models of dystonia and epilepsy.
Dr Yujing Hunag
Yujing is a visiting researcher in the lab working on the EEG/MEG data analysis and acquisition in the 'Multimodal imaging and computational modelling of Dementia with Lewy bodies' (MILOS) project. Before leaving the UK, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the AICN Group.
