Graduate Students

Dr Rajesh Jena is pleased to consider applications from prospective graduate students.

Research Interests

My research interest is in the application of advanced imaging techniques and radiotherapy treatment modalities to improve outcomes for patients with CNS tumours. I have a specific interest in MR imaging of CNS tumours and Intensity-modulated radiotherapy. In addition to this work, I am involved in multi-scalar mathematical modelling of CNS tumours.
