Dr Andrew Quinn completed his PhD in 2014 at the University of York under the supervision of Professor Gary Green and Professor Piers Cornelissen. His thesis, "Neural dynamics in brain networks during the resting state and visual word recognition”, developed methods for estimating time-varying functional connectivity from Magnetoencephalography data. 

After graduating, Dr Quinn moved to Oxford to work as a postdoctoral scientist with Professor Kia Nobre and Professor Mark Woolrich at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA). During this time, Dr Quinn developed a range of novel time-series analysis techniques for magnetoencephalography with a particular focus on Empirical Mode Decomposition and Hidden Markov Models. He also plays a major role in the New Therapeutics in Alzheimer’s Disease project which looks to

Following 8 years at OHBA, Dr Quinn started as an Assistant Professor at the University of Birmingham in 2022. His research continues
