My research interests are in the development of new magnetic resonance imaging technologies and their application to observing the physiological state of tissue after an intervention. The technologies my group are developing are advanced MRI techniques for guiding interventional procedures (such as focused ultrasound therapy), correcting for image distortions in the MR acquisition process itself, acquiring rapid diagnostic images, and developing algorithms to correct for motion. I advise postdoctoral fellows and graduate students with a variety of backgrounds including Electrical Engineering and BioEngineering.
