Dr Konrad Wagstyl

Neuroimaging scientist


Konrad is a Sir Wellcome Research Fellow at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, UCL, using computational methods to find links between cortical microstructure and in vivo neuroimaging. 

As part of this work he co-leads the Multicentre Epilepsy Lesion Detection project, an open science collaboration to develop machine learning algorithms to automatically subtle focal cortical dysplasias in patients round the world.
