Microstructural Imaging and Rehabilitative Plasticity Program
Phoebe Imms is a PhD candidate supervised by Associate Professor Karen Caeyenberghs, Professor Peter Wilson and Dr Govinda Poudel. Phoebe’s interest is in the field of neuroimaging and network analyses, such as graph theory, to model the structure of the brain. In particular, she is focused on the changes that occur within the structural ‘connectome’ following brain injury. The topic of training-based neuroplasticity is of primary interest to her current research. Following her PhD she hopes to continue studying the biological underpinnings of behaviour in health and disease using advanced neuroimaging techniques. Phoebe completed her Bachelor of Science (1st class Hons) at the University of Melbourne in 2015, and received an Australian Postgraduate Award to complete her PhD studies.
