I develop and apply quantitative magnetic resonance imaging techniques to extracranial tissues and pathologies. My work includes elements of MRI sequence design, parameter estimation and modeling, as well as physiology.


My current projects focus on MRI methods that rapidly acquire images for estimation of quantitative MRI metrics in human thoracic and abdominal anatomies.
