My research interests are primarily focused on the translation of quantitative MR methods to the clinical cancer setting.


I am currently working on the development and improvement of quantitative MRI methods (at 3T) for use in treatment assessment in breast cancer. These methods include diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and magnetization transfer (MT) imaging.
