Asad Malik


I am the Head of Statistical Sciences at P1vital Ltd. In addition to the project and people management that is required in leading a team that is working on several projects (commercial and academic) at a time, my tasks include: data analysis (hypothesis-driven and exploratory); overseeing MRI operations in multi-site studies; authoring statistical analysis plans and clinical study reports; contributing towards study protocols and data management and validation plans; and dissemination through research articles and conferences. I regularly interact with and present material to clients, and am involved in business development and costing activities. Internally, I have developed several procedures pertaining to data processing, analysis, and QC, and have contributed towards the documentation of these in SOPs.

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.
