Dr. William Clarke

Postdoctoral Scientist

Dr William Clarke is a postdoctoral researcher working in both the Stagg Group and the magnetic resonance physics group at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging in Oxford. William's work focuses on the development of methods for magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), which allows for the quantification of the concentrations and chemical kinetics of a large number of metabolites occurring within specific structures of the human brain. Currently, William is developing methods to accelerate the acquisition of multi-voxel “proton” and “phosphorus” spectroscopy.

William originally read chemistry at the University of Oxford, before completing his D.Phil. in cardiovascular magnetic resonance spectroscopy. His doctoral work focused on the high-energy phosphorus metabolism of the human myocardium. Subsequently, William moved research fields to neuroimaging, working as a postdoctoral researcher in the UK7T Network and on parallel transmit (pTx) methods at 7T for neuroimaging.
