I am interested in applying magnetic resonance imaging techniques in clinical scenarios to better patient outcomes and influence clinical decision-making. I have experience in research projects including peripheral nerve trauma, language cognition, and brain/cardiac imaging in neurodegenerative disease. I also have interest in data integrity and processing techniques.


My current projects in the Crescenzi laboratory include applying multi-nuclear MRI to patient populations with salt sensitivity, lipedema, and/or lymphedema. Current projects include comparing data acquisition methods, data analysis for sodium imaging, and working with datasets across multiple collaborations.
