Dr Petra Vértes awarded MRC Fellowship

Dr Petra Vértes has recently been awarded a Fellowship by the Medical Research Council to extend her current work on modelling the development of complex brain networks.

Dr Vértes completed both her undergraduate degree and PhD in Physics at the University of Cambridge. During her PhD she examined neural networks and how the architecture of the networks determines their performance in pattern recognition tasks. After her PhD she joined Professor Ed Bullmore’s lab in the Brain Mapping Unit and her interest shifted towards analysing large-scale brain networks based on neuroimaging data.
