Asad Malik


I work as a senior scientist at P1vital Ltd. and have a leading role in the science team with 4 direct reports. I am mainly involved in analysing neuroimaging and behavioural data from clinical trials and academic studies, overseeing MRI operations in multi-site studies, developing statistical analysis plans and clinical study reports, and contributing towards study protocols, data management and validation plans, and research articles. The academic projects I am involved in include PRISM, PRISM 2, and RTOC.

In October 2020, I was awarded a PhD in Cybernetics at the University of Reading (UK), which focussed on the evaluation of independent component analysis (ICA) and parallel ICA as methods for extracting information about functional networks in the brain from electroencephalogram (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and concurrent EEG-fMRI signals (see thesis). One of the tools I used in my PhD to generate the 'ground-truth' data was The Virtual Brain, which is a brain activity simulator that operates at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
