Andrew Lowe is currently a Lecturer and Head of Imaging Analyses. With a BSc in Applied Mathematics (1990), BSc in Diagnostic Radiography (1995), MSc in Neuroscience (2000) and PhD (2005), he brings a wide range knowledge to his position. Andrew's thesis pioneered small animal functional magnetic imaging to study neuropathic pain.
As a post-doc within the Department of Physiology, Oxford, he developed in-vivo neuronal tracing techniques to study visual pathways (2005-2007). Within the Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging, UCL, he enabled a new in-vivo MRI suite (2007-2008). Returning to his interest in visual neuroscience he examined collicular visual processing using multiunit electrophysiology within the Department of Neurobiology, KCL (2008-2012). During this period, Andrew translated visual presentation and systems-based analyses to studies of zebrafish vision.
With Wellcome Trust funding, Andrew currently studies topographic maps in the zebrafish. He is developing an experimental framework that integrates visual neuroscience, neuroimaging and informatics approaches. This work promises a conceptual advance in how biological vision may be studied. Andrew has 24 refereed papers.
