Research Summary

The field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) has advanced scientific discovery and improved our fundamental understanding of bodily functions and how these can be disrupted by disease. As an engineer, I am particularly interested in the transformation of MR from a qualitative observational tool into a quantitative scientific method that can answer basic biological questions and improve clinical diagnosis and patient management through the combination of underlying MR physics with effective signal processing and image reconstruction techniques.

My group is currently focused on the development and implementation of new MR methods for studying metabolic function in the skeletal muscle and the brain. In particular, we have developed tools for quantitative mapping of phosphorus containing metabolites in the human tissue, the abnormal levels of which are associated with several metabolic disorders in humans, including obesity and diabetes. 

Research Interests
