Research Interest

Our research focuses on developing advanced magnetic resonance (MR) based metabolic imaging and multimodal neuroimaging methods, and their applications to the study of brain function at normal and diseased states. Specifically, we are integrating physics-based modeling, prior information about the biological processes being probed, and computational methodologies to develop the next generation of task-driven imaging technologies, and use these technologies to address important neuroscience and clinical questions. We are seeking motivated students with strong engineering background as well as strong interest in biomedical imaging and neuroscience to join our group.
