Karthik has a background in Biomedical Imaging with extensive experience in preclinical imaging research using small animal MRI systems (Bruker, Agilent). Prior to moving to the UK, he was based in Finland for his MSc. (Biomedical Imaging) and Doctoral studies. During his PhD, he worked in the application of advanced MRI techniques and post-processing approaches to study tissue alterations in an experimental model of traumatic brain injury and other disease models in rodents.
In 2019, he moved to the UK as a Research Associate to join the Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre (NMRC), Newcastle University. At NMRC, he was primarily involved in the EU H2020 R-LiNK initiative (R-LiNK; https://rlink.eu.com) for optimizing the early prediction to treatment using Lithium MRI in Bipolar Disorder. In addition, he worked with the 7T preclinical MRI scanner to support existing and new users, providing MR expertise in the study setup and data analyses.
In November 2021, he joined Professor Ferdia Gallagher’s group to support the preclinical imaging research at the Anne McLaren Small Animal Imaging Facility. His role focusses on facilitating the adequate use of the preclinical imaging unit by developing and implementing imaging protocols and flexible data analyses pipelines.
