I am interested in using computational modeling to understand the biological basis of MRI signal and quantitative measures derived from MRI. I am also interested in using numerical techniques to improve image acquisition and reconstruction.


I am currently using computational models and experiments in rat spinal cord to understand the relationship between quantitive MRI measures of myelin (myelin water fraction, magnetization transfer, and ultrashort T2 signal).
