Andrew Gill graduated in Natural Sciences and Computer Science in 1993 from the University of Cambridge. After working in the commercial sector as a software engineer he re-trained as a Clinical Scientist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge from 2006-10, whilst studying for an MSc in Radiation Physics at UCL. His PhD studies were subsequently undertaken part-time at the University of Cambridge.
His PhD research interests involved the analysis of dynamic contrast-enhanced MR images using pharmacokinetic (PK) modelling to produce perfusion parameter maps of tumours. This work looked in particular at biomarkers of treatment response in tumours, temporal resolution requirements for successful PK model application and the repeatability of PK model analysis for DCE-MRI in tumours.
Concurrently with his PhD study he provided research MR physics support to Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, specialising in thoracic imaging and data analysis.
He has recently joined Dr Ferdia Gallagher’s group in the Department of Radiology, Cambridge as Image Analyst, with a particular focus on hyperpolarized 13C imaging.
