Personal profile


Dr Sjoerd Vos is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia, where is the National Imaging Facility (NIF) Fellow overseeing the new 3T human MRI scanner that is being installed in the Western Australian NIF node. This new scanner is the only research-dedicated MRI scanner in WA, and intended to facilitate high-end in vivo human imaging for the state.

Sjoerd graduated from the VU University Amsterdam with a BSc and MSc in Medical Physics, before beginning a PhD in diffusion MRI at the Image Sciences Institute at the University Medical Center Utrecht, also in the Netherlands. Upon completion, Sjoerd joined University College London in March 2014, working between UCL's Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) and the epilepsy imaging group. In September 2019, he started as lecturer in Quantitative Neuroradiology, with a joint appointment between CMIC and the Neuroradiology department at Queen Square where he worked on integrating quantitative neuroimaging techniques into routine radiological practice. This resulted in integrating quantitative imaging and analyses in dementia diagnosis and, for epilepsy, hippocampal lesion detection and characterisation. His ongoing collaborations with UCL involve improved surgical planning for epilepsy surgery using white matter fibre tractography, and automated image quality control of neuroimaging data.
