Margaret Hall Craggs
I am an academic clinical radiologist, currently Professor of Medical Imaging at UCL and Consultant Radiologist at UCLH. I am a board member of the EPSRC UCL Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training, and also sit on 2 of the UCLH Biomedical Research Centre Boards. Until recently I was secretary of the international Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
I have built and lead a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists and rheumatologists working on imaging the musculoskeletal system, and we are very active in the field of quantitative imaging and machine learning. I currently have 4 doctoral students, and am Principle Investigator of multiple grants. I have had a broad research career spanning HIV disease, Breast MRI, and gynaecological imaging.
I trained as a mentor, and have worked with senior and junior members of my organisations, mainly women. I have worked with colleagues to support their personal development, help them manage complex lives, and deal with challenges that happen to everyone along the way. I have run mentorship sessions for students at International Scientific meetings.
I have 3 children, all of whom are very happy to have had a mother who worked full-time throughout their lives.
I would be happy to discuss with any Newnham students their career choices, how to acquire the right skills for a their chosen career and how to manage and balance life, so that you stay interested, sane and happy.
I studied Medicine at Newnham, doing a Part II in Physiology.
