Rashid Afkhami



Official role at CRI: Data Analyst.

What does that mean you do? I am working on developing and validating a new non-invasive method to measure vascular health inside the brain. The new measure will help in healthy ageing and early detection of vascular dementia.

What is your favourite part of your work? I love the cross-disciplinary nature of what I do, there is so much to learn and the research outcomes can benefit many people. I also love the programming part of my job, for me it is a world with infinite opportunities.

How do you look after your own health and wellbeing? I love being outdoors, I enjoy running, cycling and mountain climbing (replaced by bushwalking after I moved to Newcastle!).
